Hello and welcome to Atwix MageNews!
This article reviews the most interesting and important topics that popped up in Magento Community last month in our humble opinion.

Back in 2017 Magento has made a move which many of us couldn’t fully comprehend back then.

Magento 2.3 GA release has finally landed. It is one of the most awaited releases that Magento ever had, and it is a thrilling moment for us at Atwix. Not only our clients can now benefit from all the new features that are available in 2.3, but also we can now see live features that our team developed working closely with other community contributors as well as Magento Community Engineering team.

endSetup() methods are commonly used for schema and data setup scripts by many developers. But do we actually need to call these methods for every install or upgrade script implementation?
