Magento have just released a new update for Magento Community Edition and we now have version 1.9 available.
There are multiple changes & updates included and you can read all about the 1.9 release here:
But before you dive off in a mad rush to make an update, we have a couple of comments for you.
Our Advice is…
Hold off until for at least a week or longer if you can.
The reason for this is simple, let others find any problems with the update process, theme support, extensions, the newly added features and changes.
There were several changes included in this update and while they may sound attractive, realistically you could probably live without them for a short period of time.
Also for those of you that are using the Ulitmo Magento website theme, the advice will be pretty much the same and when the minor revision comes out, 188.8.131.52 they’ll add support for the latest version in ( just like what happened with version 1.8, we saw version 1.8.1 follow shortly afterwards ).
