SAP Hybris Help 6.5: What’s New

On August, 30 SAP announced a new version of hybris Commerce, Release 6.5. The detailed information about the new features and changes of the release is published on hybris wiki. However, the official releases are often filled primarily with marketing highlights, so I decided to quickly analyze the data from the documentation portal to reveal important changes possibly not mentioned in the official release notes.

Every major feature deserves their dedicated page on SAP Hybris Help Portal. The updated pages are also important, but there are too many of them to list and analyze (2000+). The significance of the new pages are generally higher than the significance of the updated pages.

The main content of this blog post is about the updates of hybris Help. However, there are some interesting updates on hybris Wiki you may want to know:
