Isotope is known for its flexibility. It has never been a "one size fits all" approach, but the tradeoff is that you have more to deal with behind the scenes to accommodate as many possible uses as you can without limiting the system. Inevitably, the price to be paid is usually in performance. If the system has more to manage and think about, then it needs more time to do it. Well, in the case of product listing and filtering, we simply couldn't allow a heavier engine slow down the vehicle. As a result, two new features have been added - product caching and "Smart Filtering".

Stripe payments is venturing into uncharted and very exciting territory with their new payment service. As developers, we can't praise Stripe enough for their simple, well-built and reasonably-priced service. Simply put, they've done payments exactly right. Because we love their product, we're going to add it to an already broad list of payment options available to Isotopeans.
