Starting 2023 with better images, Algolia for Magento2 improvements, bugfixes… and a teaser

Our first release of 2023 is out!

Front-Commerce 2.21 is focused on bug fixes and minor improvements. Over the past 6 weeks, each team member took a well-deserved break for the holidays. We also had our biannual off-site week, during which all of our team members got together, which is crucial for a mainly remote team like ours.

And we’ve also been working on a little something secret 😉
