Open-Source-Happenings-Q3

It remains open season, for Magento Open Source. As a general rule in our eCommerce world, we see Q3 as a calm period. We tend to take much-needed vacations. However, this year we see an absolutely different situation developing: tons of new contributions, lots of merged pull requests. The main reason is not only in postponed vacations stemming from the business impacts of COVID-19.

Much development continued on through Q3. This season we’ve finally got Magento 2.4 released. Countless development time went into processing all the features and addressing all the bug fixes. Those contributions are now complete – we were able to include much in the new release. This publication provides highlights of the release and a quick recap of what we accomplished in the Magento open source world during Q3.
