Magento Open Source 2.0.10 Release Notes
We are pleased to present Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition) 2.0.10. This release includes multiple security and functional enhancements as well as enhancements to the Sales API. New Sales API methods allow third party solutions, such as shipping or ERP applications, to use APIs when they create an invoice or shipment.
Backward-incompatible changes are documented in Magento 2.0 Backward Incompatible Changes.
Patch 2.0.10 is now compatible with MySQL 5.7.
Patch 2.0.10 introduces two new web APIs (or service contracts) for the Sales module that incorporate functionality into the Sales API that is currently available in the Admin interface. After you install this patch, you’ll be able to use the Sales API
InvoiceOrdermethods to capture payment and ship product. For more information on these API enhancements, see the Sales API discussion in the Module Reference Guide.
Why are we adding new APIs in a patch release?
These new interfaces will not break any existing customizations or extensions. See Alan Kent’s blog about Magento for more information about these features and Magento’s use of semantic versioning.
This release includes enhancements to improve the security of your Magento software. While there are no confirmed attacks related to these issues to date, certain vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited to access customer information or take over administrator sessions. We recommend that you upgrade your existing Magento software to the latest version as soon as possible.
The following list provides an overview of the security issues fixed in this release. We describe each issue in greater detail in the Magento Security Center.
- You can no longer delete a currently logged-in user.
- Fixed issue that occurred during update with disclosure of the application’s internal path.
- Fixed issue that occurred during setup with disclosure of the application’s internal path.

- Upgrade now places stores in maintenance mode as expected. (GITHUB-3191)

Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and brute force attacks
- The Guest order view protection code is no longer vulnerable to brute force attacks.
- Fixed vulnerability to DoS attacks by full page cache poisoning.
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
- Removed vulnerability in cart checkout experience by enhancing server-side CSRF validation.
- Resolved a potential vulnerability in which customer addresses could be deleted. You can no longer deceive a user into deleting his store address book entries.
Cross-site scripting (XSS)
- Fixed issue with XSS reflection in the loading section of REST requests.
- Fixed issue with potential storage of malicious XSS code in the body of an email template. (A malicious user could use this this script to steal user information and cookies, or to bypass cross-site request forgery protection.)
We address the following functional issues in this release.

ShipOrderinterface support tasks you can already do through the Admin dashboard, including the ability to:
create a shipment document (full or partial)
add details about shipped items into an order
change status and state of an order according to performed actions
notify customer about new shipment document
We’ve added the ability to change the status of an invoice through the web API. The new
InvoiceOrderinterface supports tasks you can already do through the Admin dashboard, including the ability to:
create an invoice document (full or partial)
capture money placed with order payment
notify a customer about document creation
change order status and state
