This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop’s core codebase during the last week, from Monday 14th to Sunday 20th of March 2016.


Do you live near Paris? Are you willing to give us a couple of hours in order to test-drive the design of PS 1.7? Let us know!

The team is hard at work on PrestaShop 1.7, the next major version of the most complete e-commerce software solution there is.
You can find an up-to-date thread about it in the forum.
The 1.7 Project FAQ is always available here:

Please note that finishing the planned projects for 1.7 and delivering a quality beta version soon is the top priority for the PrestaShop Core developers at the moment. 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!
