Dear Developers,

The first one is obviously about PrestaShop being available. This maintenance release fixes 16 issues reported on versions, and Please read the release note for more informations.

Secondly, we have created the 1.7.7.x branch which will carry the changes being released with So from now on, the work carried out on develop branch will be released with 1.7.8.

Finally, after asking you what was your opinion about no longer committing generated files and receiving positive feedback for the change, we have implemented it into the develop branch. We have also updated the developer documentation accordingly in order to provide developers with all the necessary information to be able to generate these files on their own.
