At Magento, we feel happy and privileged to have a community so supremely dedicated to growing merchant experiences. Since launching our new Marketplace, within a few short years we are well past the5,000 extensionmark. However, it gives us a unique challenge because a lot of those extensions, for various reasons, are abandoned or cannot be supported well enough to be reasonably current.
In this exciting edition of “What’s happening with Magento Marketplace and the Extension Quality Program?” we will talk about end of support life for 2.2 CE, shared package compatibility selection and Page Builder compatibility enhancements
On 9/5/19, you will be able to select if your submission is compatible with Magento Commerce on Cloud or Page Builder and once approved, those options will show up in the product details on Magento Marketplace.
In an effort to encourage customers to use supported versions of Magento, the Magento Marketplace is implementing a new policy for extensions, themes and shared packages compatible with versions of Magento that have reached the end of their support life.
Keeping in line with our efforts to improve the quality of all extensions on Marketplace, as of 1/2/18 we will be implementing Varnish cache validation during Technical Review for all M2 submissions.The Varnish test verifies products do not break Varnish caching when in production mode.
The Magento 2.2 launch is quickly approaching and that means that Magento Marketplace’s Extension Quality Program (EQP) will soon start accepting extensions and themes compatible with Magento 2.2, even before the product officially launches.
