We are pleased to present Magento Open Source 2.1.14. This release includes multiple enhancements to product security plus bug fixes and enhancements. Check out the many community-contributed fixes!
Although this release includes these enhancements, no confirmed attacks related to these issues have occurred to date. However, certain vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited to access customer information or take over administrator sessions, so we recommend that you upgrade your Magento software to the latest version as soon as possible.
See Magento Security Center for a comprehensive discussion of these issues.
Magento 2.1.14 contains 38 security fixes and enhancements. The enhancements help close stored XSS, SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities. See Magento Security Center for more information.
In addition to security enhancements, this release contains the following functional fixes.
magento cron:runcommand now runs scheduled jobs as expected. Previously, cron generated only one job, no matter how many jobs were scheduled. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14096. GitHub-4173
- The misspelling in the name of the namespace in
Magento\Cron\Observer\ProcessCronQueueObserver.phphas been fixed. Previously, this misspelling resulted in a fatal error when this class was instantiated and run. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 13949. GitHub-4173
magento setup:di:compilecommand now supports quoting for base paths. Previously, this command tried to exclude paths from the compilation process via regex in the
excludedPathsListproperty. However, that property does not use quoting but instead contains the full path to Magento, which resulted in the failure to exclude some paths (for example,
/var/www/magento (1)/). Fix submitted by Ethan Yehuda in pull request 13806.
Store getConfig()now respects valid false return values. Previously, the system represented the no setting as a string value of 0 (and 0 equals false), and as a result, this method fetched the default configuration values when a configuration value was set to no. Fix submitted by Jeroen in pull request 13654.
- All console commands now return status. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14480.
- We’ve added the
web/unsecure/base_urlconfig to both website and store scopes. Fix submitted by Jeroen in pull request 13658.
- Magento now checks if
storeIdis not null rather than checking if it is empty. Previously, when
storeId 0 is_emptyreturned
true, Magento could not create a CMS page for all store views. Fix submitted by Tommy Quissens in pull request 14505.
- Magento no longer displays HTML tags in product meta descriptions. Fix submitted by Victor Seager in pull request 14436.
- The layout of
catalog_rule_promo_catalog_edit.xmlhas been changed to adjust sidebar settings. Specifically, the layout attribute value has been changed from
admin-1column. Fix submitted by Karla Saaremäe in pull request 14022.
- The Catalog Price rule’s
containscondition now works as expected when the
containscondition allows multiple options. Fix submitted by Pieter Hoste in pull request 13546. GitHub-7723
Cart and checkout
- Enhancements to LESS code include moving several LESS variables to
.lib-dropdown()variables and adding
navigation.less. Fix submitted by Karla Saaremäe in pull request 13987.
- We’ve improved the display of the Payment Methods section of the checkout page on mobile devices. Previously, the layout of page elements was not correctly spaced. Fix submitted by Marcin Kwiatkowski in pull request 13980. GitHub-13315
- You can now successfully override settings in
module-directory/etc/zip_codes.xml. Previously, when you tried to override these settings, Magento displayed only the last pattern from the module’s
zip_codes.xml. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14117. GitHub-6694
- Magento now displays accurate configurable product prices in multi-store environments. Previously, Magento displayed the same configurable product prices for all stores after the first store emulation. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14479.
- You can now successfully save an address with a blank address field. Previously, when you saved an address that contained no text in an optional address field, Magento threw this error,
'Exception' with message 'Notice: Array to string conversion on line 2903 in lib/internal/Magento/Framework/DB/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php will be raised. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14115.

\Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Socketclass. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14348.
- Navigation menus without the
display: inline-blocksetting now work as expected on deployments running on Internet Explorer 11.x. Previously, after a page refresh, navigation menus on pages running Luma or Blank themes would not work. Fix submitted by Sergiy in pull request 14332.
- You can now successfully prevent the removal of a block or container by setting the
removeattribute to false. Previously, setting this attribute to false did not cancel the removal of a block or container. Fix submitted by Tommy Quissens in pull request 14198. GitHub-1931
Stringtype was added to
\Magento\Framework\HTTP\Client\Curlto support sending JSON or XML requests. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14151. GitHub-3489
- We’ve improved the ability to store passwords using different hashing algorithms. These improvements include changes to
\Magento\Framework\Encryption\Encryptor::getHash, which previously ignored the specified hashing algorithm version that was supplied. Fix submitted by Mads Nielsen in pull request 13886. GitHub-5463
- You can now cancel the removal of a block or container from a layout by setting the

addFieldToFiltermethod. This method is called as part of the process of adding a field to the filter for the collection

magento/magento2GitHub repository. See CodeTriage for more information. Fix submitted by Eugene Shakhsuvarov in pull request 1454.

allowfullscreensetting In the theme’s
view.xmlfile now works as expected. Previously, when you set the gallery’s
allowfullscreenvariable to false, Magento displayed a white page (instead of the product page) when a customer tapped on a product image while using a mobile device. Fix submitted by Sergey P in pull request 14098. GitHub-5808
- We’ve removed the ability of the Magento Framework to explicitly set file and directory permissions from the default cache backend. Removing this functionality allows permissions to be inherited properly from the file system, and respects SETGID bit and Magento umask settings. Fix submitted by Doug in pull request 14417.

- Magento now installs the AdminGws module after it installs
Magento_Authorization. Fix submitted by Anton Evers in pull request 58.
