It depends, on what you're planning to do. You might think about moving
up in OC Versions, but make sure first, to select one, already known, to have
latest Fixes installed. Some (privately) DEV-updated OC 2.3.0.2 Versions exist,
as well as for OC v.3.x, like the one's, listed here:
https://github.com/condor2
Or then, if you decide on staying with more 'familiar' things, you could check
here, to possibly find, what you're looking for:
https://github.com/IP-CAM
to make your Shop themewise 'bootstrap-responsive', and so fully viewable
by use of Smartphones. All Versions linked/listed above will enable you, to
use PHP v.7.4.x, the 1.5.6.5_rc-based Versions linked are tested with latest
PHP v.7.4.11. And by use of this Version, you would most likely be able, to still
use most of your existing Extensions, possibly only slightly updated, to meet the
responsive Theme Layout Code, used to meet todays Mobile-View Requirements.
And more infos on the 1.5.6.5_Release can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=177&p=803356

Good Luck! ;)

Sorry for the confusion, I'm not updating and old store, but create a new one.
I was just wondering if any general third party extensions that you always install (for any store), your prefered extensions.

Once again, you define which extensions are preferred to YOUR STORE, not to someone else's.

I was just wondering if any general third party extensions that you always install ...
Well, better don't take it personal, but it's really hard, to reply on such a Posting. And it also depends
on the (exact) OC Version one uses, because many formerly 'common' Extensions likely don't (yet)
exist for latest OC v.3.x Versions. And under the Aspect, that OC3 will not much longer be LATEST, but
will be replaced by OC 4 again soon, many DEV's are likely not quite motivated, to still invest much time,
to update their older Version Mods to latest OC 3 anymore, as I assume.

It's the main reason, why I told you above, to consider the latest (modified) OC v.2.3.0.2 Release,
it still offers a wide range of popular Extensions, and it's already proven to work. Still, it's hard,
to give you an advise, which one's to use.

I added a few :laugh: most valuable free OC v.2.3.0.2 Extension Links, out of about 100 Ext. Pages, :crazy:
to make it a little easier for you, should you decide, to stay with OC v.2.3.0.2. If you decide on CONDOR2's
OC Version, just make sure, that none of them is included already. Some of the Mods listed exist from
different Coders, and you usually only need one type of them, just to have it mentioned too ... ;)

Good Luck ! ;)

Hi,

Thank you so much for the versions information I was not aware about v3 end of life.

I need to setup a store today, which version should I use?
My main concern is if I use the latest v2 now will it be more complicate to update to v4 ?
Does v4 will use Twig for the template?

Any link about what is plan for v4?

Thanks

Well, you just have to decide, to either look for a proven working Solution, to be
usable for some years to come again, like the Version you use until now. Or then
dream about a Version, not even existing, likely expecting, that the chosen Version
will still be upgradeable to v.4.x in the first place. ::)
Far out, since none of them was simply upgradeable so far, and none of them will be ... :laugh:
Good Luck! ;)
