Magento2 Coming soon to hit market

29 Aug

Magento 2 development team were on-hand to share key changes in Magento 2 project and discuss technical changes and developer recommendations. Team Magento working hard on making it more improved.

Magento 2 is an open source eCommerce R&D project facilitating the improvement of Magento Core products. With the new and improved features in Magento 2, it offer more functionality to merchants and continue to grow with the platform. Magento 2 is a prospective future version of the Magento e-commerce software, currently still in the development stage.

Some of Features That Magento 2 Offers
• Magento 2.0 will run on PHP 5.3 and Zend Framework as 1.0. And it will support MSSQL, Oracle and some other database as well. We can see that Magento keep growing and seek to support more and more popular platform soon.

• Performance is always an issue for Magento so it is recognized as resource hungry and not efficient. The team of Magento keep improving the performance of Magento version by version. With the 2.0, the performance of Magento will be expected at least 20% more faster than the latest Magento 1.x versions.

• Magento 2.0 uses jQuery library as its default JavaScript library. It’s a big plus for those who want to get rid of prototype and jquery conflict.

• The modules like catalog, customer, checkout, CMS, sales, etc will be components with high code coupling between each other. Now if you don’t want to use a certain module, you can simply disable it and write your own one.

• Magento uses Zend Framework but you can’t get this information easily as the directories structure of Magento 1.x series are quite different from the Zend Framework. For Magento 2.0, the directories structures will be quite similar to the Zend Framework.
