Magento released their new 2.4 update in July 2020 with multiple new features being added including new searches, security patches and multiple technical upgrades. So what’s new on 2.4…
Magento 2.4 comes with ElasticSearch support built in, it’s a requirement of 2.4 you cannot run a store without it.
Magento users are sure to welcome the change with new features from Elasticsearch such as: shoppers not being disrupted while Elasticsearch reindexes, supporting real-time data/analysis and support for multiple languages.
This will help speed up both the front and back end of your website meaning happier customers and clients!
Magento have introduced time-sensitive security fixes which allow you to keep up to date with your security without applying all of the functional fixes and enhancements that a full quarterly release gives you. The 2.4 update also contains over 30 security fixes and platform security improvements so keeping up to date also ensures your site is as safe as possible.
As with any Magento update the previous one will slowly fade out. Magento have announced 2.3 (security) updates will only run until the end of 2022 so although your store won’t be taken down it won’t be protected safety wise past that point.
