General messages

Dear developers,

PrestaShop was released on June 14, 2021. This maintenance release fixes 19 bugs reported on previous 1.7.7 versions.

We also celebrate two other notable releases from past week: Linklist module v5.0.0 and… PHP 8.1 Alpha 1!

By the way, PrestaShop beta was released 2 weeks ago now. Have you tested it yet? Remember that only two weeks are left in the beta phase. The next step is the Release Candidate (RC) – any bugs found at RC stage will delay the final release date. Now is the best time to look for issues!
