Magento Community Edition has released it's next version, Magento Preview Version CE 1.7.0.0-RC-1. This new version has recently been moved from Beta and is on a fast track to be a full release at a later date. Magento recommends not using this version on a production or "live" site since it's unlikely to be stable at this time. Some of the new features you'll find in this release are:

  • Autonmous creation of multiple coupons codes for the same promotion
  • Ability to support different base prices for products for different customer groups
  • Captcha functionality to reduce the amount of spam in your cart
  • Improved Backup and Rollback (backup restoration from a restore point) features
  • Mobile theme based on HTML5 (redesigned)
  • Additional Placeholders for Developers
  • Toggling IP tracking on Sales pages in Magento Backend
  • Functionality added to customize logo on emails from Admin
  • Ability to clean cached files through cron job
  • New payment methods for cash on delivery (COD) and Bank Transfer

These are only some of the changes made in the newest version of Magento 1.7.0. More information about Magento 1.7.0 can be found on the official Magento Release Notes website.

If you need to install the latest stable version of Magento (1.6.2) please see our article on Installing Magento.
