Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 highlights
Improved performance and security
Magento Enterprise 1.14.1 bolsters performance and security with new support for MySQL 5.6 and PHP 5.5. MySQL 5.6 delivers increases in site speed and scalability while reducing memory usage on the database server, and PHP 5.5 incorporates security enhancements.
Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 includes the capability to generate a comprehensive report about the Magento installation to help support personnel quickly troubleshoot technical issues. This report provides detailed system configuration data, such as the web server version, database settings and status, installed extensions, and much more, giving support technicians instant access to the critical info they need to begin resolving problems.
Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 includes new “swatch” capabilities to make products more appealing to customers by offering fast visual access to product variations such as colors, fabrics, sizes, and so on. Clicking on a swatch changes the product image to provide shoppers a visual preview of a color or fabric.
A new drag-and-drop visual merchandising tool makes organizing products on category pages easier and faster. This tool also provides access to key data such as pricing and stock levels to help merchants make more informed merchandising decisions. Rules can be defined to programmatically assign products to categories, or dynamic categories can be created to group products based on their attributes, such as new products, sale items, or products under $100 – great for building holiday gift guides.
