Magento E-commerce Community 1.7 Now Available

Magento E-commerce Community 1.7 is now available!

We spotted some interesting features in the latest version of the open source e-commerce platform:

Mobile HTML5

Quickly and easily create a optimised storefront for mobile devices. This mobile interface uses HTML5 technology and supports iPhone, Android and Mobile Opera browsers. Out-of-the-box features include:

  • Device-specific media capabilities for audio and video
  • User-friendly search and results display
  • Clean display of product detail pages
  • Pinch, multi-touch and scaling images
  • Easy swipe between product images
  • and more…

EU Cookie Restriction

Magento’s response to the recent EU Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive is a new cookie notification feature that simplifies the compliance process. Once enabled, a message at the top of the storefront informs site visitors about the cookie policy and prompts them to accept or decline.
