Dynamic changes in software from Adobe continue to surprise us. Magento 2 version is constantly being improved, and from update to update the manufacturer introduces many improvements for e-commerce. What is new in Magento 2.3 update? We have as many as 220 functional improvements and over 30 security changes.
Security changes in Magento 2.3 update:
- Safer selling.
Changes in version 2.3 update concern closing the gap in cross-site scripting (XSS) and modifications in vulnerability to arbitrary code execution (RCE).
This is an important improvement because the information about the customers of Magento-based online stores won’t be taken over and the functionalities available only to administrators won’t be accessed.
- Improved product presentation.
Another major improvement is to advance the display of products in the shopping cart. Until Magento 2.3 was updated, the photos were often stretched and filled the whole area of the image space. Nowadays in the sidebar of the shopping cart the product picture is displayed in much better quality. Photos in e-commerce are crucial, therefore it is an extremely important update, leading to an increased conversion rate.
- Easy and fast shopping.
In the update 2.3 to Magento, the focus is on making the buying process easier at shopping cart level. When you add/delete products, the side shopping cart automatically updates, and the price also changes. Errors in the case of packaged products are also eliminated.
- Increased efficiency.
The update introduced significant changes in store optimization and accelerated the operation of online stores on Magento. It has been known for a while that the loading time of the website has a huge impact on online shopping, in particular on the number of abandoned carts.
What affects performance increase in the update:
- improved indexing of catalog rules
- improved logic of customer data section invalidation (which allows to eliminate the problem with local storage)
- optimized Redis performance
- improved page caching
- eliminated redundant requests, directed to the server on the catalog pages
At the end of June 2020, Adobe ended the Magento 1 support, releasing updates and security patches only to the latest version of its software.
To introduce the best e-commerce solutions, choose migration to Magento 2. You can also maintain Magento 1 with a guarantee of operation until your business is ready for online store migration.
