Security highlight

The default behavior of the isEmailAvailable GraphQL query and (V1/customers/isEmailAvailable) REST endpoint has changed. By default, the API now always returns true. Merchants can enable the original behavior, which is to return true if the email does not exist in the database and false if it exists.

Platform upgrades

Platform upgrades for this release improve compliance with the latest security best practices.

  • Varnish cache 7.3 support. This release is compatible with the latest version of Varnish Cache 7.3. Compatibility remains with the 6.0.x and 7.2.x versions, but we recommended using Adobe Commerce 2.4.4-p4 only with Varnish Cache version 7.3 or version 6.0 LTS.

  • RabbitMQ 3.11 support. This release is compatible with the latest version of RabbitMQ 3.11. Compatibility remains with RabbitMQ 3.9, which is supported through August 2023, but we recommended using Adobe Commerce 2.4.4-p4 only with RabbitMQ 3.11.

  • JavaScript libraries. Outdated JavaScript libraries have been upgraded to the latest minor or patch versions, including moment.js library (v2.29.4), jQuery UI library (v1.13.2), and jQuery validation plugin library (v1.19.5).
