2.4.2 (2021-02-10)

This release contains a CRITICAL bugfix for applications using the base theme. The regression introduced in Front-Commerce 2.4.0 prevents Customers to move to the next checkout step if they first tried to submit the payment form without accepting GSC (unless they temporarily select another payment method and reselect the previous one).

Requirements: same as 2.4.0

2.4.1 (2021-02-03)

This release contains several important bugfixes:

  • allow guest customers with an address in a country with a required region to place a Magento2 order
  • display warnings to customers when products from their cart went out of stock or were removed from the website
  • better customer feedback during the checkout when their cart becomes impossible to finalize (if the last product was just bought for instance)
  • security improvements and robustness of the client logging API

We highly recommend this upgrade to Magento 2 users. The 2.2.0-rc.4 release fixes Magento and Front-Commerce API that were exposing products from other websites in a multistore environment. Many edge cases were found with our deep investigations: bundle items all out of stock, grouped products, crossell products only in another website etc.

We ended up fixing many things from the core ourselves, and hope you’ll now have a consistent catalog !

Requirements: same as 2.4.0
