FREE upgrade to Miva Merchant v5.5 (from v4.x)
Miva Merchant, the company behind the popular shopping cart with the same name ("Miva Merchant") released a statement on July 12, 2010 that Miva Merchant v4.x shopping cart will reach EOL (End Of Life) and will *not* be PA-DSS certified or compliant. The only solution recommended by Miva Merchant is to upgrade all v4.x stores to v5.5 PR7 (aka "Wombat") to ensure merchants are running PA-DSS compliant ecommerce platform.
