I’m thrilled to announce the latest release for the Magento Open Source community. What a way to kick off summer! Today, Adobe released the Magento Open Source 2.4.7-beta 1 patch. This is a huge step as it materializes the hard work and dedication from the community around the Community Prioritization Process, which is a democratic process where members of the Magento Open Source community can upvote the issues that they want to merge into the code base the most.
In this patch release, Magento Open Source businesses will see performance improvements, bug fixes, and exciting new PRs that were merged from the community and Adobe that will help empower merchants to take their online stores to new heights.
Specifically, this patch includes the many PRs that we have been merging with the direction of the community since the beginning of the year.
If you want to see the complete list of everything that has been merged, including items that are in progress, visit the community dashboard.
If you feel like you’re missing out, don’t fret. Here’s how you can get involved in the process:
If you are a codebase maintainer, please check the community dashboard for PRs that are available for review.
Feel free to reach out to Parul Sinha if you are interested in becoming a contributor or a maintainer for Magento Open Source. She will be happy to point you to the right resources.
In addition, this patch also includes Payment Services for Magento Open Source already installed. Now merchants will have the opportunity to quickly configure an integrated payments solution that offers simplified payment integration, enhanced security and compliance, personalized checkout experience, and comprehensive reporting and analytics, helping merchants create a hassle-free payments experience while driving increased shopper conversion. It's just one less thing to worry about as Open Source merchants are focused on driving traffic and revenue to their online sites.
I might be a bit biased since I’m close to this solution, but we’ve seen a lot of traction from Open Source merchants and developers who are excited about the value this brings. As always, merchants are free to choose any payments processor they wish.
That’s a lot of exciting value in one release. The best part is that we will have a Magento Open Source 2.4.7- beta 2 release coming soon, which I’m sure will continue to have more value delivered for the community and by the community. Thanks again to everyone who’s been along the journey and all of you who continue to help with voting, coding, reviewing, testing, and merging. We couldn’t do this without you. Together we will continue enhancing Magento Open Source and enabling prosperity for businesses worldwide.
