The core architecture has been made stronger, and more modular. Symfony2 is available in the code base which is a huge technical transformation sure to gain the applaud of developers in a long run! Having a framework as a part of the application and maintaining it has always been tedious; this is now removed in 1.7 where we have a tested globally-recognised open source framework with which managing a cart, order management, finance calculation and invoice management are no more time consuming. Thus we have more space to concentrate on core code more efficiently.
