General messages

Dear developers,

A lot of efforts are being directed on fixing the last known bugs in PrestaShop 1.7.8 in order to deliver soon a first Release Candidate. If you have not tested the beta yet, please be aware that only one week remains for the beta phase.

In the meantime, work continues on develop branch for next version. Two major Pull Requests have been merged this week for the next version: the upgrade of Symfony framework to version 4 and the removal of Addons modules being installed from the installer. These two items are part of the 1.7.9 draft roadmap that should soon be completed.

A quick update about PrestaShop’s GitHub issues and pull requests:
