ADOBE COMMERCE 2.4.3 & Q3 PRODUCT UPDATES
Progressive Web Applications
PWA Studio 11 is here with exciting enhancements to the shopper’s wishlist! Shoppers can now easily save and track items by adding products to their wishlist directly from category pages and the cart page. Purchasing from a wishlist is now simplified as well with the ability to add to cart directly from a wishlist. These improvements greatly encourage conversion on our customers sites.
We are also introducing the PWA Studio user interface (UI) kit for Adobe Commerce, built in Adobe XD. The kit provides optimized pre-configured assets, symbols, and templates for creating intuitive, mobile-first site experiences. Get the kit today, as well as its documentation and tutorials.
Also, as part of our ongoing partnership, Adobe Experience Manager has released a new headless extension for PWA Studio that allows content fragments to be leveraged across your client’s storefront. For more information, see the Introducing Adobe Experience Manager’s New Headless Extension for Adobe Commerce PWA Studio article on the Adobe blog.
Previously, merchants had to wait for some key catalog-sync processes to run for Live Search. Now in our Q3 release, we are happy to announce that catalog sync has been reduced to minutes when creating, deleting, or updating products. Additional improvements to Live Search onboarding and syncing product metadata updates will follow.
Upgrade Compatibility Tool
We’re increasing the scope of the Upgrade Compatibility Tool, originally released in January as an Alpha, to improve its usability and workflow. The upgrade compatibility tool now enables merchants to detect and validate core file modifications, export the compatibility check report as a .json file, validate VBEs, and view error codes to help identify and resolve issues. We’ve also published a new Upgrade best practices guide to help our customers and partners better navigate the upgrade process.
Observation for Adobe Commerce
Observation for Adobe Commerce visually presents application log data in combination with data from the New Relic observability platform on a single pane of glass with an easy-to-understand dashboard. The tool gathers your Commerce data to identify important signals against a common timeline that can be expanded or contracted, allowing you to visualize your log data to help with performance management and issue resolution. Instead of tracking disparate data, you can spend your time correlating events and errors to gain deep insights into the causes of performance bottlenecks.
This release includes platform quality fixes including, decreased indexing time for Product Price and Catalog Rules, expansion of the GraphQL API, and the addition of the PayPal Pay Later payment option for our native PayPal integration.
This release resolves several security issues and introduces enhancements like expansion of ReCAPTCHA security to the web-API to protect against spam and misuse, the addition of built-in web-API rate limiting to protect against DDOS attacks, and a new Composer plug in to prevent Dependency Confusion.
You can review the Magento blog, 2.4.3 release notes, 2.4.2-p2 security release notes, and 2.3.7-p1 security release notes for more information about this release and other product announcements.
