Magento team committed to deliver great quality releases starting from Magento 2.0 GA back in November 2015. It is also expected to get stable major releases every quarter starting from 2016 year. Having this in mind major release should happen in March 2016 – 2.1, June 2016 – 2.2, September 2016 – 2.3 and so on.
We live in changing environment. Especially if you support and implement big open source project such as Magento 2. Even if you have 100 developers and 30 quality assurance engineers every major release might be a nightmare when it comes to final verification.

I closely work with Payments Service Providers. Recently, I was surprised with the 2.0.6 release. The Release Notes document highlights security changes which aren’t related to payment integrations. There is only one exception – XSS protection security fix was introduced for the Authorize.net integration.
There are two major changes in the 2.0.6 introduced in the Magento\Payment module:
The reason for this change is Magento team works hard on security improvements around Payment related functionality. Also, the Magento\Payment module has no knowledge about credit or offline payments usage that is why a lot of changes going on right now.

I am planning to write step-by-step article with recommendations to cover non-documented issues. Stay tuned.
