There has been a lot of talk about Magento 2 and whether it is stable, buggy etc. I have talked before about this in a recent blog and so I don’t want to go over all that! This blog is about how quickly Magento 2 is growing in features.
So, because Magento decided to use all the latest technology it has meant that not only have they already got some great features, but they are just adding to this week by week! They are looking at all the great Magento extension development companies, seeing what has been popular and then bringing those companies into the fold with getting them to add their Magento 2 feature list for the base platform. Using the latest technology makes development quicker, more developers are onboard to want to use and learn it and it makes it even easier to integrate. An example of this would be a sophisticated shipping module by Temando, that they have officially added this now to the Magento 2 feature list. This is great because it now means that Magento 2 website owners will not have some surprise costs part way through their project where they need to be buying Magento extensions and then getting them installed and configured.
Seriously, if you are looking for a platform that is going to be with you for the long-term and keep you on your toes with having all the latest eCommerce widgets etc, then Magento 2 is the platform for you!
