This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop’s core codebase during the last week, from Monday 29th of February to Sunday 6th of March 2016.


Pull request with notable information this week:

  • 5080: Introduces a brand new template for your pull request. Improve your PR by following the presented best-practices!
  • 5105: Introduces a way to display the template name within the markup, in order to help find the problematic template.
  • 5115: Since jQzoom and FancyBox have been removed, this removes their back office option.

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.

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!
