As most of US were preparing to celebrate Halloween night, members of the Magento 2 development team were on-hand to share key changes in Magento 2 project and discuss technical changes and developer recommendations.

Attendance and attentiveness to the Magento 2 chat session was extraordinary and the community posted great questions to the Magento 2 developer team members.

Some highlights of questions that were posted:

  • Will all extensions work with Magento 2.0?
  • Migration of Magento 1.x to Magento 2.0 – will it be easy?
  • Is it realistic, to start the development of a huge project with a beta version of Magento 2 in the beginning of 2013 with the aim to have a running non-beta shop in fall?
  • Will Magento 2.0 officially support PHP 5.4?

These questions and more were covered during the live chat session.
