General messages

Dear developers,

Last week the maintainer team said goodbye to @PierreRambaud who decided to leave the project leving behind a big gap and still sitting at the top of the contributors podium. Thank you for your outstanding work on the project, Pierre!

Work continues on 8.0.0, the next major version, and also on a patch release.

You might notice we have forked the TCPDF repository in order to prepare the compatibility of PrestaShop with PHP8.1. This fork will be used until the upstream repository is compatible with PHP8.1.
