This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop’s core codebase during the last few weeks, from Monday 11th of April to Sunday 1st of May 2016.

Milestones

Since the last Core Weekly Report, we released alpha 4 of PrestaShop 1.7. Give us your feedback!

We also recently released a maintenance version for the 1.6 branch, version 1.6.1.5.

Do you live near Paris? Do you want to come test-drive the design of PS 1.7? Let us know!

The team is hard at work on PrestaShop 1.7, the next major version of the most complete e-commerce software solution there is.
You can find an up-to-date thread about it in the forum.
The 1.7 Project FAQ is always available here: http://build.prestashop.com/news/prestashop-1-7-faq/.

Do you want to encourage us? Give us a star on GitHub! :)
