I have just committed EOS .07 rc 2 to the main repository. There is still several features to finish or add to this release. It is installable but there are many changed or added items in the cart, so it may be hard to use until we get better documentation.
We do not plan on doing any upgrade apps for .07 so you would need to do that manually.
The converter is still a work in progress but in the nest month or so we should be able to get it in better shape and committed.
There has been a lot of commits in the last 30 days as we try to bring it up to date. EOS is still not ready for a live site but we are getting a lot closer. We fully expect that in the next 60 days we should have the code back to a usable form, but not all the features will be in place.
EOS Online Merchant http://www.eosonlinemerchant.org has added the ability to define product extra fields in many language definitions. In osCommerce and CRE Loaded, only categories, Products, etc could use this feature. Track it at http://smeagol.strikehawk.com/mantis/view.php?id=712
Add feature on product page which facilitates allowing the customer to ask the store admin a question about the product. http://smeagol.strikehawk.com/mantis/view.php?id=757
We are adding kits and packages which use tables external to the product table to store the relations ships. It would be advisable to change sub products to use this same method. Where we use an external look up table it use to identify which child products should be attached to the parent when purchasing the products.
Also to fit other application sub product is being renamed Multi-products for the moment. http://www.oscommerceuniversity.com/lounge/index.php/topic,840.0.html

The Product Review System has received updates including additional rating fields, ability to edit and create new reviews from Admin and improved presentation. These features will also be applied to content reviews.
This is in keeping with the EOS philosophy of building stronger content management tools that promote community involvement in eCommerce activities.
We recently began the migration of all product quantity tracking into a new table set and adding new user interface elements to support inventory tracking for all products.
Users of product attributes will be happy to hear that this means the ability to track inventory down to the specific product option value sold. Unlike the osCommerce QT Pro contribution, this system does not serialize data into a single database field and may therefore benefit more completely from MySQL indexing..... read more
As with previous releases this one is likely to include improvements which "break" osCommerce compatibility. In particular, granularity of language management has been somewhat improved, and the language system rebuilt to use RFC 3066 standard language identifiers rather than an arbitrary language ID. This has been extended to language directory names and other modifications to improve i18n utilitzation/compliance have been made.... read more
