Magento Community Edition 1.8.1 is out with improvements!

We are pleased to announce that Magento Community Edition 1.8.1.0 is now available for download. This latest release advances overall product quality by providing significant tax calculation updates, functional improvements, and security enhancements.

Highlights include:

Improved Tax Calculations to provide more accurate and consistent Value Added Tax (VAT) and Fixed Product Tax (FPT) calculations for bundled products, cross-border transactions, and the Magento admin, invoices, and credit memos.

Support for the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (W.E.E.E.) recycling tax in the EU.

Functional Improvements that enhance product quality for the shopping cart, checkout, content management system, product import and export, and other key areas.

Security Enhancements to further harden the platform against potential threats.

It is important that you confirm your extension is compatible with this latest release. Please take the time to download the new version, test your extension, and make any necessary updates. Be sure to review the upgrade instructions posted in the Magento Knowledge Base before uprading.

Once you’ve confirmed that your code is compatible, update your extension profile on Magento Connect and upload the new version (if you have a free extension with updates), so that merchants know your code supports Magento Community Edition 1.8.1.0.
