Magento Open Source 2.0.7 Release Notes

We are pleased to present Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition) 2.0.7. This release includes one functional fix.

Backward-incompatible changes are documented in Magento 2.0 Backward Incompatible Changes.

Fixed issue

The payment gateway now works as expected in a Magento installation running PHP 7.0.3. Previously, when you would place an order in an installation running PHP 7.0.3, the checkout page would become unresponsive, and the transaction would not appear in the payment gateway. (GITHUB-2984, GITHUB-2878, GITHUB-3305, GITHUB-4076).

System requirements

Our technology stack is built on PHP and MySQL. Magento 2.0.1 and later support PHP 5.5, 5.6, 7.0.2, and MySQL 5.6. For more information, see System Requirements.
