Upgrading to 1.1.12

This feature release is dedicated to the introduction of our new Guest Details component. This significant improvement separates the email address field into its own distinct component, effectively streamlining the user experience. As a result, it has been removed from the shipping address component. Accordingly, when this new feature is enabled and the filled in email address already exists, both the password and submit form elements are shown to let the customer sign in optionally.

Please refer to the changelog for details.

Please check the upgrade process overview for Hyvä-Checkout first.
Then, to upgrade, run the command

composer update --with-dependencies hyva-themes/magento2-hyva-checkout:1.1.12

Only on Magento version 2.4.5-p1 and above

A new checkout option, "Enable Guest Checkout Login" (Sales > Checkout > Checkout Options) has been introduced starting from version 2.4.5-p1 and beyond. This feature allows system administrators to toggle the querying of existing email addresses on or off.

When set to "Yes," it enables the password field to appear when an existing customer enters their email address in the Guest Details component.

Backward incompatible changes

Shipping address email field no longer required.

When upgrading to 1.1.12, make sure to run by the shipping form configurations, who can be found within the backend system configuration, and make sure the email field is not longer enabled and required.

  • Stores > Settings > Configuration > HYVA THEMES > Checkout > Components > Shipping Address Form

Accordingly, the guest details login feature needs to be activated manually to avoid the situation where the email address is required for guests, but the user is not able to do so.

  • Stores > Settings > Configuration > HYVA THEMES > Checkout > Components > Guest details


This release has no deprecations.
