This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop’s core codebase during the last two weeks, from Monday 18th to Sunday 31st of January 2016.

Milestones

The team is hard at work on PrestaShop 1.7, the next major version of the most complete e-commerce software solution there is. The previous Core Weekly report made a good summary of what’s to come, and you can find an up-to-date thread about it in the forum. More content coming soon!

Please note that finishing the planned projects for 1.7 and delivering a quality beta version soon is at the moment the top priority for the PrestaShop Core developers. Merging community pull requests has therefore slowed down until then, but will be back with a vengeance once we have a first beta to release to you! So please keep testing, and keep sending patches our way: it’s the raison d’être of this community project!
