General messages

As announced in last week’s Core Weekly Report, we release 1.6.1.16! It contains the usual number of merged pull requests, and as you know, we plan on continuing supporting PrestaShop 1.6.1.16 with monthly patch releases until October 2018.

Version 1.7.2.0 was rather well received, and we are planning a first patch release for this version in the coming days – either this week or the next, depending on the tests currently being done. Stay tuned!
