Howdy everyone! Here’s the third edition of the PrestaShop Core Weekly.

As a reminder, the Core Weekly posts highlight some of the more important happenings in and around the Core of PrestaShop.

This post is focused on the activity from March 9th to March 15th of 2015.

Do you have ideas on how to improve the Core Weekly posts? Let me know in the comments!


Some cool things are happening for our community and the overall improvement of the codebase. It’s not quite ready yet, but soon you’ll see it all, and you’ll be able to participate!

One thing to notice: PrestaShop developers now do all their work using Pull Requests (PR): no more direct commits to the codebase, now you can see where new code comes from, and comment on the PR! Consequently, the “Notable commits” section of this Core Weekly report is not needed anymore :)

Now, onto last week’s code changes…
