This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop’s core codebase during the previous two weeks, from Monday 29th of August to Sunday 11th of September 2016.

General messages

We released version 1.6.1.7 in early September. It’s a recommended upgrade for any 1.6 user, and a must-update for 1.6.1.6 users, since it fixes a possibly nasty issue with vouchers. Please, 1.6.1.6 users: upgrade now, and help your friends upgrade!

Download 1.6.1.7 now!

As for 1.7, as you can see in the code changes for the develop branch, there has been A LOT of changes to 1.7 since RC0: many fixes, several improvements, and some cool new features as well. For instance, did you see that PrestaShop now features a child-theme system? Read the early doc, and try it out!

Are your modules 1.7-ready? Have a tried to create a 1.7 theme? Check the current tech doc!

You can find an up-to-date thread about the 1.7 development in the forum.
