    Following up on the Version 6 release, we're going back to our monthly updates schedule. The Sep/Oct update (6.0.1) includes some minor bug fixes and improvements.

    Some of the highlights of 6.0.1 are the integration with STRIPE as a new supported payment processor and the improvement on XML Sitemaps to support stores with over 100k products.
