Magento Open Source 2.0.15 Release Notes

Patch code and release notes were published on June 21, 2017.

We are pleased to present Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition) 2.0.15. This release includes only one enhancement: Support for changes in PayPal’s Instant Payment Notification (IPN) service.

For increased security, merchants using PayPal’s Instant Payment Notification (IPN) service will be able to use only HTTPS when posting messages back to PayPal for verification. In the past, PayPal has allowed the use of HTTP for these postbacks. PayPal provides more information at IPN Verification Postback to HTTPS Microsite.

You must upgrade or apply this patch by June 30, 2017 to avoid any disruption to this service.
