Magento 2.2.5 Release Highlights – The fixes for Magento 2.2.4

Today(June 26th 2018), the Magento team released its latest version of the e-Commerce platform, Magento Commerce 2.2.5 and Magento Open Source 2.2.5. Merchants who haven’t updated to the previous version are advised to go straight for version 2.2.5. Check for the download link at the bottom of this entry.

 

This release is reported to mostly include security enhancements, bug fixes and improvements upon the feature-rich but buggy 2.2.4 release. In case you miss our analysis for version 2.2.4, check it out here. Overall, the changes apply to both the Commerce and the Open Source edition.

 

Here are the release highlights for Magento Commerce 2.2.5:

 

•  Enhancements that help close stored XSS, SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities.

•  Substantial improvements to indexing performance.

•  Over 150 community contributions.

•  Improvements to our core bundled extensions.

 

And for Magento Open Source 2.2.5:

 

•  Enhancements that help close remote code execution, cross-site scripting, and cross-site request forgery issues.

•  Substantial improvements to indexing performance.

•  Over 150 community contributions.

•  Improvements to our core bundled extensions, including Magento Shipping.

 

Community contributions:

 

While the core code enhancements focus on performance improvements, the highlights here are the Community contributions of 150 changes. Here are the most noticeable ones:

 

•  Users can now create an account from the Order Confirmation page. Previously, a customer could not populate the required fields to create an account from this page, which displayed an error.

•  Magento now correctly applies coupon codes that exclude bundle products. Previously, Magento applied these coupons but did not exclude bundle products as expected.

•  When sorting simple products (and simple products with required custom options), Magento now takes into account catalog promo price rules.

 

Magento Shipping

 

This release of Magento Shipping also includes some minor enhancements, such as pagination to improve the Admin experience and multi-version API.  There are also a few key improvements to Magento Shipping as follow:

 

• With core returns, merchants can select carriers to use for returns and send a return label along with forwarding fulfillment.

• Batch processing increases automation and merchant efficiency by making it easier to process a large volume of shipments in batches.

• Collection points provide the ability for customers to designate a drop point rather than the residence for delivery by carrier.
