Magento EE 1.14.1.0 Release Notes

See the following sections for information about changes in this release:

Highlights

The following sections discuss highlights of the EE 1.14.1 release.

Visual Merchandiser (EE only)

Magento EE only. Organizing products on category pages is now dramatically faster and easier. Our new drag-and-drop visual merchandising tool lets you see precisely what a category page will look like to shoppers—and makes it easy to adjust product positions and to feature "hero" products at the top of a category.

Plus, access to critical information in the tool—like pricing and inventory levels—helps you make smarter merchandising choices. You can also save time by cloning categories, setting up rules to automatically assign products to categories, or by creating dynamic categories, such as "new products," "on sale," or "gifts over $100," based on product attributes.

Note: Visual Merchandiser is intended to be used only with EE 1.14.1. To add the Visual Merchandiser to earlier versions, contact On Tap. Magento does not support Visual Merchandiser in versions earlier than EE 1.14.1.

For more information, see Overview of the Visual Merchandizer for Magento Enterprise Edition (EE) 1.14.1.

Configurable Swatches

Configurable swatches help you optimize the way products are presented on your site. New "swatch" capabilities make products more appealing—and boost conversion rates—by offering shoppers quick access to information, like available colors, fabrics, sizes, and more.

Clicking on a swatch automatically updates the product image so shoppers see exactly what a color or fabric looks like, giving them confidence to proceed with their purchase.

For more information, see the Magento EE 1.14.1 and Magento CE 1.9.1 Configurable Swatches Guide.

Responsive Design Improvements

It has never been easier to create a mobile-friendly site now that Magento's responsive design reference theme includes all core Magento features, including gift registries, downloadable products, multiple wish lists, add-to-cart by SKU, and private sales.

It even boasts responsive default email templates so customers can read your order confirmation emails and newsletters on any device.

For more information, see the Magento EE 1.14.1 and Magento CE 1.9.1 Responsive Email Developer's Guide.

Technology Updates

Magento Enterprise Edition boosts performance and security by adding support for MySQL 5.6 and PHP 5.5.

With MySQL 5.6, you benefit from improved site speed and scalability, reduced memory usage on the database server, and enhanced debugging tools.

PHP 5.5 provides security improvements and ensures you have continued access to code updates. And, for those of you who haven't already upgraded from PHP 5.3, there are potential performance improvements—up to 25% based on reports from some customers.

Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 has been updated to support Universal Analytics, the new standard for Google Analytics. With this update, merchants can define more custom dimensions and metrics for tracking, incorporate offline and mobile app interactions, and gain access to ongoing feature updates that will only be available on Universal Analytics.

Magento EE System Reports (EE only)

Magento EE only. Now administrators can generate a detailed report about your installation to help support teams more easily diagnose and resolve issues.

These reports provide information about your Apache version, MySQL settings, PHP extensions, database corruption status, and much more, giving support teams information needed to start debugging, minimizing back-and-forth conversations with you.

For more information, see Using Magento Enterprise Edition (EE) 1.14.1 System Reports.

Multi-Administrator Support

This release significantly improves backend scalability and eases administrative tasks by enabling many administrators to make product updates at the same time—without causing deadlocks or critical data errors.

This support for larger teams gives merchants power like never before to achieve their aggressive goals.

If you're using an EE version earlier than 1.14.1, this feature is available in a patch as discussed in Recent Patches.

Other Improvements

Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 includes updates to promotions, product import/export capabilities, security, and other features as part of our commitment to continually improve product quality.

Solution for Magento Mobile Issue

Magento Mobile uses the XmlConnect module to provide mobile phone storefront.

XmlConnect is disabled by default and, as a result, users who attempt to view your mobile storefront might see the error The server responded with invalid data.

To resolve this issue:

  1. Log in to your Magento server as a user with root privileges.
  2. Open the following file in a text editor:
    [your Magento install dir]app/etc/modules/Mage_XmlConnect.xml
    For example,
    vim /var/www/html/magento/app/etc/modules/Mage_XmlConnect.xml
  3. Change this:
    <active>false<active/>
    to this:
    <active>true<active/>
  4. Save your changes to Mage_XmlConnect.xml and exit the text editor.
  5. Clear the Magento cache:
    1. Log in to the Magento Admin Panel as an administrator.
    2. Click System > Cache Management.
    3. Click Flush Magento Cache.
    4. You can log out of the Admin Panel.

  • Customers using a smartphone or other small viewport can expand subcategories in the web store that uses the new responsive theme.

Recent Patches

Note: The patches discussed in this section are built in to EE 1.14.1; you need to get them only if you're running an earlier EE version.

We'd like to draw your attention to several new patches that were recently posted to the Partner Portal and Support Center. These patches deliver important improvements, such as enabling several concurrent administrators to work with the product catalog, and to make it easier to install community-created translation packages.

Details about the patches follow. To install these patches, see How to Get Patches For Magento EE.

General Magento Connect Patches

Patch name: PATCH_SUPEE-3941_EE_1.14.0.1_v1-2014-08-12-12-10-06.sh

  • When you install a community-created translation package, the translation provided by the package overwrites any existing translations for the same items. This enables you to more easily install packages with translations.
  • To improve security, Magento Connect now uses HTTPS by default to download extensions, rather than FTP.
  • Extension developers can now create an extensions with a dash character in the name. Merchants can install those extensions without issues.
  • Magento administrators who attempt to install an extension with insufficient file system privileges are now informed. Typically, the Magento Admin Panel runs as the web server user. If this user has insufficient privileges to the your Magento install dir/app/code/community directory structure, the Magento administrator sees an error message in the Magento Connect Manager.
    To set file system permissions appropriately, see After You Install Magento: Recommended File System Ownership and Privileges.

Magento Install Page Displays After SOAP v2 Index Page Refresh

Patch name: PATCH_SUPEE-3762_EE_1.14.0.1_v1.sh. Refreshing the SOAP v2 index page (http://your-magento-host-name/index.php/api/v2_soap/index/) results in all administrators and customers viewing the Magento installation page.

Multiple Simultaneous Magento Administrators

Patch name: PATCH_SUPEE-3819_EE_1.14.0.1_v1.sh. Multiple Magento administrators can simultaneously add new products; or edit descriptions, edit prices, or edit stock quantities of existing products without causing deadlocks, key violations, or critical data errors. Together with applying the patch, you must set all indexers to Update when scheduled as follows:

  1. Log in to the Magento Admin Panel as an administrator.
  2. Click System > Configuration.
  3. In the left navigation bar, from the ADVANCED group, click Index Management.
  4. Expand Indexing Options.
  5. From each list, click Update when scheduled.
  6. Click Save Config in the upper right corner of the page.

Magento EE 1.14.0.0 Release Notes

See the following sections for information about changes in this release:

Highlights

This section lists the key new features in Magento EE 1.14. For more information about these new features, see New Features in EE 1.14 and CE 1.9.

  • The default theme in Magento EE 1.14 uses Responsive Web Design principles to provide a better experience for users of mobile devices in particular. Benefits include:
    • You can get a tablet and smart phone friendly responsive site in about half the time as before, speeding time to market and freeing up resources for other projects.
    • Your responsive site makes you better able to participate in the fast growing mobile commerce space, gives you the ability to more easily adapt to new opportunities, and is less expensive to maintain. A responsive site also offers potential search engine optimization (SEO) benefits because it uses Google's preferred approach to mobile-optimizing sites.
  • Magento EE 1.14 now supports Solr versions up to 3.6.2 natively (that is, without a patch). Catalog indexing happens efficiently and automatically in the background, with no manual intervention required, resulting in better administrative performance.
    For more information about using Solr with Magento EE, see How to Use the Solr Search Engine With Magento Enterprise Edition.
    Note: If you're using the Solr search engine with EE versions 1.13.1 or earlier, you must perform an additional step during upgrade due to the fact that the Solr schema changes in EE 1.14. You must copy two files to your Solr server—schema.xml and solrconfig.xml. For details, see the section on upgrading Solr in the Magento upgrade guide.
  • Cross-border trade: (Also referred to as pricing consistency.) We support European Union (EU) merchants operating across regions and geographies who want to show their customers a single price. Pricing is clean and uncluttered regardless of tax structures and rates that vary from country to country.
    To enable cross-border trade in the Admin Panel, click System > Configuration > SALES > Tax > Calculation Settings, option Enable Cross Border Trade.
  • Supports PHP 5.4. For more information, see the PHP changelog.
  • The Zend Framework has been upgraded to version 1.12.3
  • Checkout improvements:
    • You can capture up to 18% more sales by providing customers access to financing using the Bill Me Later service at no additional cost to you.
    • You can offer your customers a smoother, more streamlined PayPal Express Checkout experience, which tries alternative payment options when a customer's credit card is rejected
    • Improve the PayPal Express checkout experience by eliminating the following steps in the checkout process:
      • The order review page can be enabled or disabled
      • Eliminate the necessity of clicking Update Order before Place Order

(Conversion means helping customers stay interested and complete their purchases.)

Security Enhancements

  • Addressed a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability while creating configurable product variants.
  • Addressed a potential security issue that could result in displaying information about a different order to a customer.
  • Users can no longer change the currency if the payment method PayPal Website Payments Standard is used.
  • Removed an .swf file from the Magento distribution because of security issues.
  • Improved file system security.
  • Enhanced the security of action URLs, such as billing agreements.
  • Addressed a potential session fixation vulnerability during checkout.
  • Improved the security of the Magento randomness function.

Changes

  • A default setting for configurable and bundled products has changed. When you create a configurable or bundled product in the Admin Panel, click Manage > Products. Create a new configurable or bundled product and click the Design tab. The default option for Display Product Options In has changed to Product Info Column.
  • The Google Websites Optimizer has been disabled because it has been deprecated by Google. (In earlier EE versions, this option was available in the Admin Panel at System > Configuration > SALES > Google API > Google Website Optimizer).
  • Two new options to prevent "clickjacking" if you run Magento in a frame or iframe:
    • Enable frames only in the same domain.
    • Enable frames.
    • Important: For security reasons, Magento strongly recommends against running the Magento software in a frame.

      The options are available in the Admin Panel at System > Configuration > ADVANCED > Admin > Security and are named Allow Magento Backend to run in frame and Allow Magento Frontend to run in frame.

      Enabling the option causes the X-Frame-Options request header to be sent.

  • FedEx changed their endpoints for sandbox and production to the following:

    Because of these changes, Magento cannot retrieve shipping rate information or print shipping labels for FedEx unless this fix is applied.

  • EE 1.14 includes a fix that prevented some Discover credit cards from validating properly. The issue was that certain Discover credit card number ranges were not recognized as being valid. As a result of the fix, all Discover cards should validate properly.

    Important: This is not a security threat. No data has been compromised or misused. It affects only the ability to validate certain credit card number ranges as valid Discover card numbers.

  • If you use the Solr search engine, you no longer need to manually reindex the Catalog Search Index (except after you upgrade to EE 1.14 from an earlier version).
  • The default values for two configuration options changed. Both options can be found in the Admin Panel under System > Configuration > CATALOG > Catalog > Frontend. The new default values follow:
    • Products per Page on Grid Allowed Values is now 12, 24, 36.
    • Products per Page on Grid Default Value is now 12.
  • On the New Rule page for shopping cart price rules (Rule Information tab page), explanatory text Usage limit enforced for logged in customers only was added to the Uses per customer field. This is to avoid confusion encountered by some Magento merchants.
  • Changes to PayPal Express checkout:
    • Changes to both Proceed to Checkout and to Pay With PayPal:
      • Customers cannot edit their billing address on the PayPal site—in fact, the billing address does not display on the PayPal site.
      • Magento EE uses the customer's PayPal address information, not the address information stored in Magento EE. The customer does not need to enter Magento CE or EE address information.
      • When the customer is redirected to the PayPal site, they can click Change next to their payment method to change it.
      • The Magento administrator can set billing address information in the Admin Panel as follows: System > Configuration > SALES > Payment Methods. For any payment method that includes Express Checkout, in Basic Settings, set the value of the Require Customer's Billing Address list.

    • Changes to Pay With PayPal only:
      • If the Magento administrator does not require the customer's billing address, the customer's billing address is set to the customer's PayPal shipping address.
      • If the Magento requires the customer's billing address, the customer's billing address is set to the customer's PayPal billing address.
      • On the PayPal site, the customer can click Change next to their shipping address to change it. The customer can choose any shipping address configured with PayPal.
      • Because the customer's configured address in Magento is not used, the customer's shipping address stored in PayPal is never changed.
    • Changes to Proceed to Checkout only:
      • No Change link displays next to a customer's shipping address on the PayPal site.
      • In the event of a shipping address mismatch between Magento and PayPal, the following message displays when the customer attempts to pay using PayPal:
        The address you entered on store-name is different than your PayPal preferred shipping address. 
        Return to store-name if you'd like to change the shipping address
        The user can select the Use as preferred shipping address check box to instruct PayPal to change their shipping address.

Tax Calculation Fixes

  • Fixed price and dynamic price bundled products where the price is configured to include tax display prices correctly regardless of tax settings. (For example, customer's default tax rate is different from the origin tax rate.)
  • Resolved a one-cent rounding issue when Fixed Product Tax (FPT) is enabled and the option Apply Discount to FPT is set to Yes. (These options are available in the Admin Panel by going to System > Configuration > SALES > Tax > Fixed Product Taxes.)
  • Resolved issues with calculating the credit memo amount when FPT is discounted and the customer purchases more than one item.

Fixes

Fixes in this release can be divided into the following categories:

Web Store and Shopping Cart Fixes

  • With full page caching enabled:
    • Customers can no longer see each other's wish list or previously viewed products.
    • Related products set to not rotate display on the web store. (In other words, an administrator set System > Configuration > CATALOG > Catalog > Rule-Based Product Relations, option Rotation Mode for Products in Related Product List set to Do not rotate.)
    • The product ratings block refreshes on the storefront after a new rating has been approved.
    • Tier pricing is calculated properly.
  • Resolved a 404 (Not Found) error navigating from a product in one category to an upsell product in a different category.
  • A customer can update quantities of items in their mini shopping cart from their My Account page.
  • The Minimum Advertised Price pop-up works properly in the web store. When the customer clicks Click for price, the price displays as expected.
  • The "customer since" date is correct.
  • Switching stores when viewing a product with store-scoped URL keys works as expected.
  • Setting System > Configuration > CATALOG > Inventory, option Display Out of Stock Products to Yes no longer causes all products to appear as out of stock.
  • Entering accented characters in the zip code field during checkout results in a validation error instead of an exception message.
  • Gift card codes are sent only after an item is purchased.
  • A customer who attempts to log in as another customer with incorrect credentials is denied.
  • Resolved issues with applying a 100% discount to an order.
  • Customers are no longer redirected to the home page when they have permission to view a category.
  • Discount amount displays correctly for products with custom options.
  • Issues with placing PayPal Payments Advanced or PayPal Payflow Link orders using Internet Explorer 9 have been resolved.

Promotional Price Rule Fixes

The following fixes relate to administering and using shopping cart price rules and catalog price rules:

  • Shopping cart price rules apply properly to grouped products.
  • Two catalog price rules applied to the same product work properly.
  • The setting Stop Further Rules Processing is honored.
  • A user with read-only privileges in the Admin Panel cannot save changes to a price rule.
  • Applying a shopping cart price rule does not display an exception.
  • Coupon codes apply only to products eligible for the price rule.

Administrative Ordering, Invoicing, Credit Memo Fixes

  • An administrative user with access to only one website from which a product was deleted no longer sees a stack trace when attempting to create an RMA for that product.
