Functionality Changes

[*] Add-ons: Customers also bought: Products in the block with the “Also bought” filling are now sorted from the most purchased to the least purchased.

[*] Add-ons: Data feeds: Product option combinations can now be exported to Google Merchant Center with their GTINs (the CODE field) and images. GTINs of products can also be taken from the CODE field, if the product doesn’t have a corresponding feature.

[*] Add-ons: Data feeds: Tips and notifications related to Google Merchant Center were added to the page that contains the list of data feeds.

[*] Add-ons: Google reCAPTCHA: Image verification: The old CAPTCHA was removed from the core. Relevant image verification settings were moved to the “Google reCAPTCHA” add-on, backward compatibility preserved.

[*] Core: Registry: Cache update handlers are now stored separately from each other and can be processed independently. That reduces the server load and eliminates race condition.

[*] Marketing: Abandoned carts: The data that an unregistered customer enters during checkout is now saved when the customer doesn’t complete checkout.

[*] Multi-Vendor: Accounting: The “Account balance” page was replaced with the new “Accounting” page.

[*] Shipping methods: UPS: Upgrade: The “Suggested Retail Rates” pickup type is no longer supported by UPS. This pickup type will be automatically replaced with “One Time Pickup” in all existing UPS-based shipping methods during the upgrade.

[*] Storage: CDN: Amazon SDK library updated to version 1.6.3.
