Now Available: Security and Performance Updates in The New Magento Commerce Release
We are pleased to announce that the latest versions of Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source are now available. With important updates to security and productivity, we strongly recommend that merchants upgrade as soon as possible to ensure their sites are secure and optimized for the highest level of performance.
MAGENTO COMMERCE AND MAGENTO OPEN SOURCE 2.3.2
Supporting our merchants’ need for secure, high performing sites, the latest release of Magento software includes several security enhancements along with substantial performance improvements. Highlights of this release include:
Security: Multiple enhancements were identified by leveraging Adobe’s sophisticated security tools and the large reach of the Adobe Hacker One bug bounty program.
Performance: Significant performance upgrades include 20% improvement to storefront page-load times, product images loading concurrently with other page content, and up to 90% improvement in category browsing for merchants with large catalogs.
Productivity: Several actions are now performed as asynchronous background processes, allowing administrators to continue working while tasks are being processed in the background.
Quality: Over 130 product quality enhancements across many critical areas of the platform.
We also released Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source 2.2.9 and 2.1.18, Magento Commerce 188.8.131.52, and Magento Open Source 184.108.40.206 today. These versions also include the aforementioned security enhancements.
The Magento 2.1.18 software release marks the final supported software release for Magento version 2.1. As of June 30, Magento 2.1 will no longer receive security updates or product quality fixes now that its support window has expired.
You can review the release notes for more information about all of the enhancements and go to the Security Center for more information about the security updates included in these new versions.
