According to a blog posted on the Magento Site:

Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 empowers merchants to create the most unique and captivating online experiences possible for consumers. Available for download today for existing customers, Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 helps merchants increase their sales and productivity in many ways

New Visual Merchandising Features

Magento Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 allows merchants to organize products on category pages using a new drag-and-drop visual merchandising tool. Merchants can preview what a category page will look like on the front end and adjust product positions with the click of a mouse. Merchandisers can make real-time updates in response to changes in consumer demand and inventory levels.

Other new merchandising features, including the ability to consistently fix “hero” products at the top of a category and automatically sort products according to special rules, help to further optimize category sales. Plus, new access to critical information within the tool, like pricing, product images, and inventory levels, helps merchants make more informed merchandising choices.

Colour Swatches.

Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 helps merchants optimize the way products are presented on their sites. New “swatch” capabilities empower merchants to show off a broad range of product attributes to boost conversion rates. Richer at-a-glance product information, like available colors, fabrics, and sizes, improves consumer confidence to proceed with their purchase.

Enhanced Responsive Design for Mobile Devices

Building on its most recent release, Magento has enhanced its responsive design reference theme to include gift registries, downloadable products, multiple wish lists, add-to-cart by SKU, private sales, and more. Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 also includes responsive default email templates, so customers can read your order confirmation emails and newsletters on any device. This is critical when you consider that 42 percent of all emails are opened on mobile devices*.

  • Support for MySQL5.6 and PHP 5.5 Added
  • New support tool allowing Magento to solve technical issues faster
  • Increased back-end scalability enabling more administrators to work at the same time.
