Now both Magento CE and EE has gained lots of useful improvements. They include numerous new features, security advances. The most important among them are:

  • PayPal In-context check-out​

There are also some other minor Magento 2 new features:

  • You can successfully import and export CSV files with data that contains special symbols (those  that are not escaped during file processing).

  • There are two new web API endpoints that permit you to process refunds from orders to invoices (you don’t need a patch for that now).
