Magento 1.7, a new update to the already dependable e-commerce platform, should be released sometime within the next month, and with it, brings some exciting new features (as well as many bug fixes).
Some of the forthcoming highlights in Magento 1.7 include:
- Implemented different base prices for customer groups
- Added auto generation of coupon codes
- Added captcha functionality to some forms
- Backup and rollback functionality
- Indexers refactoring (a big advantage if it will help the speed of reindexing)
- Redesigned theme for iPhone
