General messages

Dear developers,

In case you did not see it, PrestaShop was released last week!

Note that if you plan on upgrading your shop to 1.7.7 and your current version is below 1.7.6 you need the latest version (v4.11.0) of the autoupgrade module.

As usual, it is recommended to be careful before starting to update your website to the latest version:

  • Backup your database and your files
  • Test the update on a testing or pre production server
  • If everything is fine, then update on the production environment

Following the early adoption of PrestaShop 1.7.7, some bug reports have been submitted about upgrade issues. The maintainer and QA team are all hands on deck exploring and fixing these issues.

If you notice issues with PrestaShop, you can report it on GitHub and go even further by submitting a pull request to help fix it!
