Version 16.09.0 is now available for download in the client area of our site.

Be sure you are familiar with the General Information for Updates. This thread details things that are specific to this particular release. Specific information on each change is always available in the changelog.

This release contains 6 new features, including a new free addon, and 11 bugfixes. The Price Drop Auctions addon allows for the creation of Buy Now Only auctions that automatically lower their prices over time if not purchased. There is a new Smarty function, {language_select}, which will generate a dropdown that can be added to any template to give users an easy way to switch between site languages. Along with that, we have tokenized all template text in main_page templates (for new sites only), which will mitigate the need to have an entire template set for each language, in an attempt to make things a bit easier on those who want to make their sites available in lots of languages. See the full changelog for various other bugfixes (php5.5 password_hash() logins now work correctly!) and a handful of Quality-of-Life improvements.
