"During the past two months I have been gathering information for future articles on Ecommerce. One of the products in that research is a Perl-based application called MiniVend. The provider of MiniVend touts it as being a full-featured Ecommerce solution which piqued my curiousity, so I decided to speak with the product's main proponent, Mr. Mike Heins. I was shocked to learn that Mike lived in the very town I lived in, and so without too much effort I soon found myself chatting face-to-face with Mike at his home here in Oxford, OH. Besides being a lucky coincidence, I was also able to gain a valuable perspective of the product that I would not have gotten had I spoke only by phone or some other method."

"The current and available version which you can download from ftp.minivend.com is version 3.14. Version 3.15 is due to be out soon and release 4.0 will be out after the start of the new year. Version 4.0, besides including ASP syntax support, will also strip out much of the past version compatibility components which will result in a more compact and sleek system."
