Our release process

In order to release changes as quickly as possible, we don’t use defined release cycles but rather Continuous Integration. This allows us to bring you new features in a few hours and fix problems even faster. Nevertheless all of our releases include only non-breaking changes with the same API version.

Releases

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 14 September 2017

By using predicates on Shipping Methods, we are empowering our merchants to build their own set of shipping method rules.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 8 September 2017

The new cart tax mode ExternalAmount allows to set the totalGross, taxRate and taxPortions fields on cart’s content externally by the client instead of the platform. This is useful in case you prefer to have those values calculated by a third party service.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 7 September 2017

It is now possible to publish only the prices of a product. This allows you to keep other product information you don’t want to publish yet, like updates in the product description, in staged projection while the updated prices will be published already. Product variants to be added to a cart can now be specified by their SKU. Before, the only option was to specify them by their product ID plus variant ID.

After introducing keys on categories, we now extended the update actions for adding and removing products to and from categories. Now it is possible to update products by category key in a same way as by category ID.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 29 June 2017

Every ‘manage’ scope for a resource, like Product, Order, Customer and so on, now also implies the respective ‘view’ scope automatically. So far the ‘view’ scope had to be specified explicitly which is not needed anymore.

We extended the number of supported message buses by adding the Azure Service Bus destination to the subscriptions endpoint.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 26 June 2017

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 21 June 2017

We introduced the new Line Item price mode ‘ExternalPrice’ in which the prices for line items are set externally while eligible cart discounts will be applied. The external prices can now be set during creation of line items.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 20 June 2017

The inputHint on AttributeDefinition provides a hint to developers how text-based attribute values should be visually represented in the frontend.

Release Notes - commercetools platform - Version Release 16 June 2017
