Yes, maintenance release 14.0 sp1 r1 is now available for stores on the Linux 32-bit and 64-bit server platforms.

* adds SameSite attribute to cookies set by the cart when the cart is secure in preparation for upcoming changes to cookie handling in the Chrome browser.

* fixes an issue with PayPal Express where a shopper who chooses a different zip code in PayPal than they indicated on the cart would be correctly sent back to the cart with the message 'The correct Postal Code has now been updated' however the postal code in the cart wasn't automatically getting updated to the new one from PayPal.

* fixes an issue for Safari/iOS browsers where the Enter key would cause the first item in the cart to be removed instead of the cart recalculated.
