1.2.3 focused on bug fixes, small tweaks/enhancements, a few additions and then some improvements to existing features to Sunshine Photo Cart.

Custom CSS

When you choose the Default Sunshine Theme, we make it really easy to edit various colors and fonts in the admin without any CSS knowledge. We have also now added a new design customization option that allows completely custom CSS via the WordPress administration area available when using both the Default Sunshine Theme and your own custom WordPress theme.

Template Overrides

As a developer, it's nice to have complete control of CSS to really customize the look and feel of your photo cart. However, we now let developers go one step further by allowing complete template file overrides. Simply copy a template file from Sunshine over to your own theme and then make any changes you want. This feature was actually available in beta versions but removed during a large code overhaul before our 1.0 release. But it's back and here to stay.

Improved Analytics

Along with some bug fixes, we have added some additional new analytic tracking and data. We will be writing what we think is an excellent article related to analytics and price levels which will take advantage of these new widgets. You can now see what your most popular galleries are based on sales data, which of all your images made you the most money, and also which images were the most purchased within an individual gallery.

While these are the highlights of this release, it's not everything it includes. Here is the full changelog:
