Magento 2.2 update now available

Magento 2.2 has completed a thorough testing phase and is now closed to new development. At this point in time, there should be no changes that impact your ability to update extensions or custom modules.

Please continue to submit your updated extensions to the Magento Marketplace. We recommend that you limit your updates to the composer.json and module.xml files if possible so your extensions can go through an expedited review process (estimated seven business day turnaround). If code changes are necessary due to backward incompatibility issues or to add net new functionality, the submission will go through the standard review process and timeline. We expect the final release will be published in the next few weeks, so please submit your extensions Magento 2 soon.
