Hello there Magento fans!

Are you eager to learn about some news and updates we've have prepared for you this month?

To start with, there was made am important security fix for Magento 2 Login as Customer extension. Get more details on this in the article about Login As Customer Security Fix.

Besides, from now on login as a customer option is disabled in case customer's company is not verified in Magento B2B.

As for the Magento cloud users weren't able to login as customers due to the missing product key field, now it is fixed.

There were released 2 new extensions this month, which we're proud of. 

Website speed is extremely important when it comes to SEO. Since one of the main reasons for poor website performance usually is the number of pictures on the website there is a need to optimize them. The best solution for this is WebP, next-gen image format that is significantly smaller in size than JPG and PNG. That's how we've decided to develop the Magento 2 WebP Images extension that would help you to automatically convert images to the new WebP format.

The next release of this month is FREE Magento 2 Translation extension, a great tool for those who want to manage the translation of their Magento website manually being unsatisfied with the current translations. The module allows you to add and remove translations directly from the admin and increase the translations database in case you've already made some with Magento Inline Translate. If you want to add some custom translations of labels, buttons or any other kind of content on your website this is the right tools for you.

Speaking about Magento 2 Image Lazy Load extension, there was added a new feature that allows you to change the lazy load JavaScripts configuration via theme layout. Moreover, lazy load is now fully compatible with the WebP images extension we've released recently.

That means pictures on your website except for being optimized will be lazy-loaded. You will not only improve your website speed but satisfy and attract more customers with fast performance. 

Sometimes, orders address data is corrupted during the migration from Magento 1 or any other platform. That complicates the conversion of guest orders to the customer.

So, we improved Guest to customer conversion for orders with the corrupted address data as well as elaborated text and labels in Magento 2 Convert Guest to Customer extension.

In case you're managing a multi-language store Magento 2 Alternate Hreflang extension is a great tool for better store switcher. We've improved the 301 redirect during the store switching so that there don't appear any 404 errors or redirecting to the homepage once customer decides to switch the lenguage.

There also are added some code style improvements to simplify the extension management for you. 

Managing CMS content with Magento 2 CMS Display Rules Extension is much easier. In order to make it function flawless we've fixed the issues with validation of "time from" - "time to" and with DI compile.

From now on, NOT LOGGED IN  customer group will be saved without errors. Besides, we have made some minor code improvements.
