Magento Open Source 2.1.x

Release Notes

Magento Community Edition 2.0.2

This release resolves issues that some users encountered while upgrading from Magento 2.0.0 to Magento 2.0.1 using a compressed archive file (.zip, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2). For a detailed description, see the technical bulletin Issues upgrading to 2.0.1 (Jan. 28, 2016).

The content of this release does not include changes to the code, and the issues might not directly impact your current installation, provided that:

  • You installed Magento 2.0.x using either git clone or composer create-project.

However, if you installed Magento 2.0.1 from an archive, you will encounter problems later with future upgrades. For this reason, we highly recommend that you upgrade your installation to Magento Community Edition, version 2.0.2.

Fixed Issues

  • Magento no longer throws an exception or fatal error when upgrading from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1.
  • You can now successfully upgrade from Magento 2.0.0 to Magento 2.0.1 using composer update.
  • You can now upgrade from Magento 2.0.0 to Magento 2.0.1 using Packagist.
  • If your server runs PHP 7, the updater application no longer throws an error during the Magento upgrade process. See the technical bulletin for more information.

System Requirements

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

Installation Instructions

New Installations

New users can now complete a full installation of Magento Community Edition 2.0.2 from an archive file on the Download page.

Upgrading Existing Installations

If you installed Magento Community Edition 2.0.0 from an archive, you must perform some additional tasks before you can upgrade your installation. Current users of Magento 2.0.0/2.0.1 must first update the installer from the command line. Then, update the installation from the Web Setup Wizard or command line. For detailed instructions, see the technical bulletin.
