After a Beta and a Release Candidate, the long awaited PrestaShop 188.8.131.52 has been released and is available for download. As usual, you can upgrade with the Auto upgrade module. However, considering that the current period is usually critical for merchants sales, for sure, some might prefer to wait for a more appropriate time :-)

Clear cache on module action
PrestaShop now clears the symfony cache when an action is performed on a module (install, uninstall, enable, …). This is necessary because modules can now use Symfony routing and services, so we need to clear the cache if we want these services/routing to be updated.
Lazy loading of the variables returned by the Cart / Order / Product presenters: if some informations are not used in your templates, they are not computed anymore.
