Why is good to update Magento to the latest version?

Upgrading the store is a good idea even when it works smoothly. Applying the newest patches you protect the shop from potential cyber-attacks. Besides the newest Magento version includes options you can need. Here is a list of a few improvements:

PHP 8.2 Support


One of the headline features of Magento 2.4.6 is its support for PHP 8.2, providing users with the benefits of the latest PHP version. This move signifies Magento’s commitment to keeping pace with current technologies. However, it’s important to note that support for PHP 7.4 has been discontinued, making it imperative for Magento users to upgrade their PHP version for compatibility.

Security enhancements

Security remains a top priority, and Magento 2.4.6 doesn’t disappoint, offering eight crucial security fixes. These enhancements are integral in fortifying the platform against potential vulnerabilities, ensuring safer online operations for both merchants and customers.

Composer and redis

The release supports Composer 2.2.x and introduces support for Redis 7.0.x. While Redis 6.2 remains compatible, the shift to 7.0.x is recommended.

    Search engine options

    OpenSearch is now the default search engine for both cloud and on-premises deployments, supporting OpenSearch v2.x. Additionally, compatibility with Elasticsearch 8.x is also introduced

      DHL schema update

      Magento 2.4.6 updates the DHL schema from v6.2 to v10.0, aligning with DHL’s latest offerings and improving shipping efficiency.

        JavaScript and dependencies

        The update sees the removal of outdated JavaScript libraries and dependencies, ensuring backward compatibility while enhancing performance and security.

          Symfony and laminas upgrades

          Significant upgrades to Symfony dependencies and Laminas frameworks have been made, aligning with PHP 8.2 support and improving overall system robustness.

            Accessibility improvements

            Magento 2.4.6 also focuses on enhancing accessibility, particularly in its Venia (PWA) storefront experience. These improvements are crucial for creating a more inclusive digital space.

              Adobe IMS Integration

              Key Adobe IMS modules have been decoupled from the core code and are now offered as a separate metapackage, maintaining functionality while simplifying updates and maintenance.

                GraphQL performance enhancements

                Significant improvements in GraphQL performance, particularly in category queries and bulk cart operations, mark this release. This enhancement improves the user experience, especially for large-scale Magento deployments.
