I was really impatient to see what is coming behind this new version!
Yesteday, I was very excited when I received a mail from Varien with title “Magento Connect Redesign“: a PDF which contains numerous pages which explain what is changing. Great.
But after reading the 22 pages of this PDF, it seems that it’s only look and feel which’ll change: you won’t be able to add css in package description now, but be able to add icons, update developers informations, etc.
Change will be applied on October 12th, at the Innovate developper conference
So let’s wait and see what this “new” magento connect will contain 🙂
