MageRewards 1.9.0 is now available!

Release Date: January 11, 2017

In v1.9.0 of MageRewards we've made a number of big improvements:
There's been a complete overhaul of the referral functionality to allow for scalability of the system and allow for neat features such as referring friends to a particular product page as well as shortening the referral links even further. We've also rebuilt the Points Transfer system, to allow for scalability and much faster operations.

Note that the nature of the changes in this version, pose a significant challenge in downgrading to an earlier version. Also, if customizations have been implemented on top of MageRewards, the upgrade to v1.9.0 must be done with caution. Be sure to read our article about  Points Transfers in MageRewards v1.9.

Lastly, don't forget to put your store into Maintenance Mode, before upgrading!
