2.0 suggestion:

 How default extensions are deployed:  a different mechanism for obtaining and installing the core default extensions should be consider for the 2.0 versions.

Examples of current issues:
In the case of extensions like FedEx, Stripe, etc.  the APIs can have changes enacted by the companies that render the current version non-functioning.
Although we all like to think our coding is infallible, at times it is not and there needs to be a fix to an existing extension, again the current default version is non-functioning.
Issues:
Default versions within the Admin panel have no easy way to update to a working version.  Having to wait until a new version of AbanteCart is released may not be quick enough or Admin may not wish to update at the moment.

Expecting novice users to understand how to pick a code line from GitHub and fix and existing file is often overwhelming.
Expecting AbanteCart users to always update to the latest cart version to get a working default extension is also overreaching.
Proposed Solution:
Core extensions deployed and available within the marketplace with a free price still. Also consider having updated API versions (FedEx, Stripe)  the work for several AbanteCart versions.  Perhaps a core/default section in the marketplace? 

Thanks for reading,  and hopefully considering a different way of handling default extensions.

My suggestions:
Add the new social icons like instagram pinterest e.t.c..
when sharing is must show the correct meta titles and pictures.
choose vertical or horizontal menu with multilevel support.
floating menu.
similar products on check out for cross selling.
floating add to cart button.
bootstrap of frontpage.

Thank you for suggestion but most of the things you mention you can achieve with extensions
bootstrap of frontpage. - default template is bootstrap already  ;)
similar products on check out for cross selling. - Also purchased, Top Selling products
choose vertical or horizontal menu with multilevel support. - search for menu in Marketplace
when sharing is must show the correct meta titles and pictures. - SEO Rich Snippet, Facebook Open Graph
