It's Time to Upgrade to Magento 2.4.1

With the holiday season quickly approaching, retailers who want to offer the very best to their customers should consider upgrading their platform to Magento Commerce 2.4.1, which was just released on October 1. This latest version of Magento includes valuable tools for B2B and B2C stores, numerous security updates, performance improvements, and everything else you’ll need to make the season bright!

Some of the top highlights from Magento 2.4.1 include:

  • An improved PageBuilder that can be used in full-screen mode to easily edit content.
  • Over 150 fixes to the core code.
  • A sitewide analysis tool dashboard integration.
  • Improved shipping methods for B2B.
  • CAPTCHA protections for payment methods and order placements.
  • An improved shopping cart feature.
  • Over 15 security enhancements.
  • New admin features.

In addition to these impressive enhancements, Magento customers will also be able to take advantage of the following benefits after upgrading to 2.4.1:

Magento Security-only Patch

The security-only patch gives sellers the ability to install crucial security fixes without needing to install several other functional fixes to their site. This feature is designed to fix all of the vulnerabilities that were uncovered in the previous Magento release (Magento 2.4.0).

Infrastructure Improvements

This version of Magento Commerce addresses some of the key functional areas of an online store, including the ability for shoppers to clear their entire shopping cart with a single action. General framework improvements were made, as well as enhancements in:

  • Customer Account
  • Catalog
  • CMS
  • OMS
  • Import/Export
  • Promotions and Targeting
  • Cart and Checkout
  • Staging and Preview

Performance Enhancements

Magento 2.4.1 reduces the size of network transfer between Redis and Magento, which translates to reduced network cache sizes and faster execution times in most cases. Three new configuration settings are also included to decrease customer queue CPU consumption and save server resources. Lastly, the upgrade boosted execution time for “bin/Magento” commands.

To make sure your store is ready for the holiday shopping season, upgrade to Magento 2.4.1 as soon as possible.
