The finished product of version 2.3
The publishment of Magento 2.3 was such a stepping stone of the revolution of the Magento platform. And recently, Magento has launched another version. This version is not, perhaps, a big jump when compared to the former version but it is a little bit more perfect: Magento 2.3.1.
Magento 2.3.1 has been highly expected since February
Magento first introduced this version at Magento Live event held in Australia on February 12th. Rapidly creating engaging site content, reaching new audiences, creating high-conversion mobile experiences, delivering worldwide… are all promising upgrade told by Jason Woosley, Senior Vice President of Magento Commerce. Magento also came up with a notification that this version would drop in March, which drew a lot of attention from the Magento community at that time.
And now, this version is completely available!
On March 26th, Magento has released an official notification of launching Magento 2.3.1. They provide all detailed information, including release note for both Open Source and Commerce. Please access two documents below to explore what’s new in Magento 2.3.1:
