General messages

Dear Developers,

In case you missed it, 1.7.8 beta has been released yesterday! Please read the Release Note then help us testing it. We are looking for all kind of feedback, especially from module developers to find out if their modules behavior is correct with this new version. Docker images are also available for this beta version.

Another PrestaShop release is also making its way to the stage: PrestaShop patch version has been delivered to QA team who is running the standard patch release test campaign to validate it.

In the meantime, in the PHP ecosystem, Symfony released Symfony 5.3.0. What a great week for releases!
