This year’s Magento Imagine conference saw the announcement of Magento Community Edition 1.9 and Enterprise Edition 1.14. But what do these changes entail? The documentation page for these new releases covers everything you need to know about the latest editions of Community and Enterprise.
One of the most impactful features of Community 1.9 and Enterprise 1.14 is the responsive design theme. This gives merchants the power to easily optimize their sites for mobile shoppers in a more cost-effective way than before. With more and more B2C and B2B sites taking their product to the mobile platform, this update will help merchants stay relevant and competitive.
Additional updates include an improved PayPal experience as well as the Bill Me Later financing feature, which Magento says can lead to 18% more sales. Other updates include search indexing and security upgrades.
