Magento 2.4.5-p3 and 2.4.5-p4 Release Notes

These two releases have been released in September 2023, almost half a year after the 2.4.5.-p2 release and contains 13 security fixes and platform updates. Mainly they've changed the default behaviour of the isEmailAvailable GraphQL query and REST endpoint. Now the API returns true.

Besides, this release is compatible with the latest version of Varnish Cache 7.3 and RabbitMQ 3.11. Finally, the js library (v2.29.4), jQuery UI library (v1.13.2), and jQuery validation plugin library (v1.19.5) has been upgraded to the latest minor patch versions.

Magento 2.4.5-p5 Release Notes

It's the final release of Magento 2.4.5 which brings 10 security fixes. A new full-page cache configuration setting that helps to decrease the risks related to the {BASE-URL}/page_cache/block/esi HTTP endpoint. 

Additionally, Adobe provides a workaround for the wrong checksum error that appears during the download by Composer from repo.magento.com. If you've encountered this error, you should delete the /vendor directory inside the project if it exists then run the bin/magento composer update magento/module-page-cache command. It will update only the page cache package. 

However, if the issue persists, they recommend removing the composer.lock file before running the command.
