Magento World Newsletter (November 9, 2009)

aheadWorks Co. is glad to present a traditional brief review of our month’s work - new extensions, guides and updates. But the most important point we would like to pay your attention at is the license change.


We are also pleased to announce that now you can follow us on Twitter and be informed about all aheadWorks Co. news and changes in no time!


Important License Change


After a number of requests from our customers, and before the next bunch of new releases, we have decided to change the extensions license terms and grant more opportunities to deploy and use aheadWorks products. From now on, we license per Magento installation, not per domain. Hope this change will help you to cut costs and enjoy more top-notch Magento modules by aheadWorks Co.


The whole text of the license can be found here:

New User Guides


Proper customer care and support is one of aheadWorks Co. main principles. That’s why a considerable part of our efforts is devoted to the development of User Guides. A detailed and well-illustrated Guide saves your time, prevents from possible mistakes and helps to improve the extension functionality.


In October the list of User Guides was enlarged with the Advanced Reports User Guide. It is available in PDF from the Advanced Reports page. In the Guide supplied with numerous illustrations you can find the step-by-step description of the extension configuration and the detailed description of each report making.
