There doesn't seem to be any carts ready for drupal 7... is drupal 6 the way to go for the time being?
If you are wanting to build your site now, D6 is indeed the way to go. If you are willing to wait a few months then something will eventually come around for D7.
The Drupal organization has shut down discussion on improvement of the forums: https://www.drupal.org/node/2536122
It's time to start a new forum somewhere else. The Drupal organization does not care about the forums.
http://drupal.org/project/ubercart is out of alpha testing and into beta. Might be less than a few months. If you're just making a shopping cart, then there's other open source options available. My favorite is probably Open Cart, but there's a handful of other choices.
I like Opencart but I want a blog ideally and the guys making the site are familiar with drupal & upbercart and not with OC.
Old thread, but it ranks high for these terms in Google, so it needs an update.
How about Commerce? http://drupal.org/project/commerce
Two main ones are Ubercart http://drupal.org/project/ubercart and Commerce http://drupal.org/project/commerce
Ubercart Demo http://ubercartdemo.com
Drupal Commerce Demo http://demo.commerceguys.com/dc/
Drupal Commerce and Commerce Kickstart is the way to go here.
