General messages

Dear developers,

There is still a lot of effort focused on 1.7.8 in order to deliver a first Release Candidate.

In the meantime, here are some news about what’s going on in the PrestaShop project:

An interesting discussion opened in issue #24954 about a change in terminology: it is about replacing “product combination” with “product variation”.

The wording “combination” has been used for a long time in the Back Office, so changing it might create confusion. We would love to hear your feedback about this topic! To do so, feel free to complete this survey and share it with other PrestaShop users in your network.

You can also tell them about the incoming public demo on YouTube that will happen next Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 2pm CEST.

Finally, you might have noticed a change on the Developer Documentation website. The search bar is now being powered by DocSearch which is a free tool provided by Algolia for developer documentation websites.
