Now Available: Important Security and Performance Updates in The New Magento Commerce Release

Supporting our merchants’ need for secure, high performing sites, we are excited to announce that the latest versions of Magento Commerce, Magento Open Source, and our new security-only patch (2.3.2-p2) are now available.  

 

MAGENTO COMMERCE AND MAGENTO OPEN SOURCE 2.3.3 

 

The latest version of Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source incorporate important changes to our native payment integrations to comply with new European directives (learn more about PSD2 Compliance Support) and introduces PHP 7.3 support. (Please note that security support for PHP 7.1 is reaching its end of life. You should plan to take action in order to remain PCI compliant if you still rely on PHP 7.1. You can learn more here). We strongly recommend you upgrade to ensure your online store stays compliant and maintains the highest level of security and performance. 

 

Some of the highlights included in this release are: 

 

  • Security:We continue to strengthen our platform and to reduce our backlog by focusing on reported issues. For that reason, we have included almost 100 security fixes in this patch. 
  • Performance: Faster loading times and better overall shopping experience by displaying text while webfontsload in the background and moving non-critical CSS items to the end of the loading queue. Additionally, we are reducing the number of requests going back to the server, which helps increase throughput and decrease resource consumption. With these and other performance enhancements we were able to improve our Google PageSpeed Insights score by up to 5 points in some instances. 
  • Quality: Over 190 product quality enhancements across many critical areas of the platform like our Sales, Catalog and Checkout modules.

 

We also released Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source 2.2.10, Magento Commerce 1.14.4.3, and Magento Open Source 1.9.4.3 today.  

 

2.3.3 PRODUCT ENHANCEMENTS 

 

Admin User Experience Research 

Magento Commerce is introducing the tracking of user actions and events on the Admin panel as part of our efforts to better understand the Admin user experience and improve product design. Post installation, the first user signing in will be presented with the option to accept or decline to participate. Read more about it in our User Guide. 

 

Graph QL 

Improved Graph QL API coverage for PayPal payment integration, Gift Cards and Store Credit functionality. Learn more about Graph QL in our Release Notes. 

 

Google Shopping ads Channel 

Our Google Shopping ads Channel extension is now part of our core code. This integration will allow merchants to quickly sign up and begin leveraging this tool’s benefits without requiring them to download an extension from the Marketplace. Learn how Google Shopping ads Channel delivers the power of Google’s advertising network in one end-to-end solution.

Several other product enhancements have been delivered throughout Q3. Below is a summary of some key releases.

Security-only patch 

The new security-only patch is a lighter, easier-to-deploy code. It provides fixes for recently identified vulnerabilities against the previous quarterly patch. To learn more about this patch and how to download and install it, please visit our blog post here.
