Magento 2 is available

Magento 2 is here

Magento has finally announced the general release of Magento 2.0.  This next generation platform has been much anticipated since it was first announced in 2010 with a proposed release date of 2011 – fast forward years and it’s finally here and ready to use.  This new platform will need specialised hosting to ensure the best performance and you can be sure that Create Hosting will be a leader in this.

The most obvious change is the appearance of the backend with an updated colour scheme and menu changes aiming to make it more intuitive and user friendly.  Some of the new features include:

  • Better security (currently vulnerability free) and easier to upgrade
  • Completely new file structure
  • Full page cache
  • Fully responsive
  • An architecture that allows for easier customisation
