General messages

Dear developers,

Hacktoberfest is over. But the PrestaShop project continues, stronger than ever.

In case you did not see it, Autoupgrade module 4.3.0 was released last week!

Also last week, the project’s tenth monthly public demo session was held and streamed live on Wednesday 3rd of November 2021. If you did not watch it and you want to know more about the future of the PrestaShop open source project (and not the software), check what @ttoine presented during the 10th PrestaShop Public Demo!

While PrestaShop is being tested before release, PHP 8.1.0 fifth release candidate and Symfony 6.0.0 first beta have been published!
