Magento Community Edition 188.8.131.52 is here! This latest release includes many contributions from the Magento developer community and empowers merchants to operate their online stores more easily and efficiently by delivering significant tax calculation updates, functional improvements, and security enhancements, including:
Tax Calculation Updates
Building on tax improvements made in our most recent release, Magento Community Edition 184.108.40.206 provides more accurate and consistent Value Added Tax (VAT) and Fixed Product Tax (FPT) calculations for the Magento admin, invoices, and credit memos. It also improves tax calculations for cross-border transactions, bundled products, and multi-tax scenarios, as well as supports the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling tax in the EU.
Magento Community Edition 220.127.116.11 includes important improvements across the shopping cart, checkout, content management system, and product import and export. Many of these updates came from Magento community hackathons (see photos of the events below). Please give a big "thank you" to the contributors highlighted in the product release notes for making the Magento platform better!
Magento Community Edition 18.104.22.168 delivers several important security enhancements, helping to further strengthen the platform against potential threats. These enhancements were identified through a rigorous process that included comprehensive internal testing, quarterly penetration testing by expert consultants, and engagement with the Magento developer community. Additionally, one improvement from Magento Community Edition 22.214.171.124 is now available for download for earlier Magento Community Edition releases.
