Magento 2.3.1 Hosting is the world’s leading e-commerce platform; the application of choice by both small businesses and multinational corporations alike. This release includes significant contributions from our community members. These contributions range from minor clean-up of core code to the development of substantial features such as Inventory Management and GraphQL. Although code for these features is bundled with quarterly releases of the Magento core code, several of these projects (for example, Page Builder and Progressive Web Applications (PWA) Studio) are also released independently. Bug fixes for these projects are not documented in these core release notes but in separate project-specific sets of notes.
Apply patch PRODSECBUG-2198 to address critical SQL injection vulnerability
A critical SQL injection vulnerability has been identified in 2.3.x Magento code. A fix for this issue is included in Magento 2.3.1. If you cannot immediately apply the full patch, you can quickly protect your store from this vulnerability by installing patch PRODSECBUG-2198. However, we strongly encourage all merchants to stay up-to-date on security patches. See the description of PRODSECBUG-2198 in the Magento Security Center for information on this vulnerability.
PayPal Payflow Pro active carding activity update
The PayPal Payflow Pro integration in Magento is being actively targeted by carding activity. To resolve these carding activity issues, Magento has provided Composer packages that add an option for Google reCAPTCHA and CAPTCHA to the Payflow Pro checkout form. See PayPal Payflow Pro active carding activity for a full discussion of this issue and instructions on downloading these packages. We strongly recommend that all Payflow Pro merchants download and install these packages to help enhance the security of their storefronts.
Apply the Admin Dashboard Image-Charts patch to address deprecation of Google Image Charts
Magento 2.x currently uses Google Image Charts to render static charts in Admin dashboards. Google stopped supporting Google Image Charts on March 14, 2019, and Magento is providing the Admin Dashboard Image-Charts patch to replace Google Image Charts with the Image-Charts free service. Users of Magento 2.x deployments will not be able to view static charts in Magento 2.x instances unless they download and apply this patch. See Switch from deprecated Google Image Charts to Image-Charts for Magento for information on downloading and applying this patch.
Look for the following highlights in this release:
Merchant tool enhancements
Improved order creation workflow in the Admin
The Admin order creation workflow has been refactored to eliminate delays when editing billing and shipping addresses. Processing of these fields now happens only after they are populated.
Ability to upload PDP images without compression and downsizing
Merchants can now upload PDP images larger than 1920 x 1200 without first compressing and downsizing the images. Previously, when a merchant uploaded a high quality product image (larger than 1920 x 1200), Magento resized and compressed the image. Merchants can now set requirements for resizing and compression as well as compression quality and target width and height.
Inventory Management 1.1.0 (Community-developed feature!)
The Multi-Source Inventory (MSI) community project has added multiple new features to this release of Inventory Management.
- Support for Elasticsearch and Inventory Management. All site searches now return correct products and quantities when Elasticsearch is used as the search engine. (As of this release, only default option from 2.3+) Searches return results from stock assigned to the website. Advanced features are supported, including filtering search results. Community-developed feature!
- Distance Priority Source Selection algorithm (SSA) option. Merchants can enable this algorithm to reduce fulfillment costs by shipping orders from the closest inventory locations. This SSA option uses address geocoding through the Google Maps API to calculate the shortest distance for deliveries.
- Enhancements to mass inventory transfers. Bulk transfer of inventory has been optimized to improve processing speed and to reduce locking during transfers.
