The Magento 2.2 launch is quickly approaching and that means that Magento Marketplace’s Extension Quality Program (EQP) will soon start accepting extensions and themes compatible with Magento 2.2, even before the product officially launches.
Starting August 14th, we encourage developers to submit packages which have been tested with Release Candidate 2 (RC2) or later releases. To ensure fast approval and listing in the Marketplace in time for the launch of Magento 2.2, we recommend you only update the composer.json and module.xml files before verifying that your code works as designed. If it does, submit it to Marketplace EQP (link below) and we’ll expedite our review process (estimated 1 week turnaround).
Note: If code changes are necessary due to backward incompatibility issues (see details below) or to add net new functionality, the submission will go through the standard review process and timeline.
