London, United Kingdom, February 16, 2013 --( DS Data Systems UK Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of KonaKart v6.5.0.0, a java-based enterprise eCommerce shopping cart application that provides an extensive set of features to enable retailers to successfully sell their products over the internet.

The main highlight of v6.5.0.0 is the new storefront application which has been completely redesigned.
