Vendor Information Manager
PIM now provides a module to manage vendor information. It consists of 3 sections, Vendors, Vendor Attributes, and Vendor Attribute Groups.
You can create an unlimited number of vendors and collect all information based on business requirements.
Each vendor form has a mechanism to ensure all assigned attributes are entered before publishing.
An explicit action for publishing the vendors to commerce APIs and external systems has also been introduced.
Fabric PIM now supports the following seven data types for defining your vendor information: Text, Number, Boolean, Date, Serial, List of Values and Dynamic List of Values.
Vendor Attribute Group
You can create collections of relevant attributes to assign to multiple vendors.
Attributes inside the groups can further be classified in different sections to leverage the upcoming features such as workflow and role-based access control.
Filters on Item List
A comprehensive set of filters have been added to the Item list page.
You can filter the items based on their hierarchies, date created or modified as well as all the attributes and their values.
A new full page UI provides easier to navigate through the attribute creation process.

Hierarchies: This new feature enables you to create a hierarchical structure to organize your products into different groups and categories for a variety of business use cases. There are two types of hierarchies-
Master Hierarchy allows you to create the anchoring tree structure that defines the relevant attributes for different categories of items to organize the catalog. There can only be one master hierarchy.
Alternate Hierarchy allows for the assortment of items based on multiple conditions, such as placement in Master Hierarchy, attributes & values, then groups them together under one or many subcategories. There can be any number of Alternate Hierarchies.
You can now create and manage items and variants of an item through parent-child relationships and bundles of items in PIM.
You can define which attributes should inherit the value from parent item to variants & generate variants based on required number
You can create bundles of items and/or their specific variants
You can also define quantities for every item in a bundle
