A little later than usual, discover the latest happenings in the PrestaShop Project for August 2023. We had a productive month, successfully merging more than 240 pull requests and releasing PrestaShop 8.1.1 and some security patches. Read on to find out more!

Core Monthly banner

PrestaShop 8.1.1, 8.0.5,

The first patch for PrestaShop 8.1 and security patches for 8.0.5 and are all available to download. You can read the details about these versions in the release notes:

More information regarding security fixes can be found in the security advisories. If you didn’t know it already, security advisories are a great way to stay up to date with the latest security fixes in PrestaShop – apart from reading our blog, of course! ;-)

Upcoming PrestaShop 8.1.2

Since PrestaShop 8.1.1 is now available, we started working on the next patch version. We are planning to release PrestaShop 8.1.2 in September. You can already check the pull requests that will be integrated into this version. Aside from bug fixes, we are also going to introduce a few new features, such as:

For those who work on Windows, it’s worth checking this PR, which checks the validity of your environment configuration. You can read more about issues with OpenSSL in PrestaShop on Windows here.

PrestaShop 9.0

Maintaining older versions of PrestaShop and its modules is one part, but, of course, we are still working on the next major version. A lot of focus continues around the Symfony layout migration, fully Symfony-based layout is part of the project which will be released behind the feature flag in version 9. Apart from that, the work continues on cleaning the codebase of deprecated code, and new back office API is getting more love and a lot of new features.

Since it’s a major version, you can expect major changes. One of the notable ones is the removal of the code related to the Advanced Stock Management feature. Of course, every notable change will be listed as part of the “Notable changes in PrestaShop 9” page, which we will create when version 9 becomes feature-frozen.

What else? We welcomed a great contribution from @tups who improved the way we load jQuery UI in the front office. This change should improve the performance of the front office. And one last thing I would like to mention, Symfony container is now available in front office 🎉. Behind the feature flag, for v9, but still, it is a game-changer for many reasons to be explained in the future :)

Autoupgrade improvements

We are also working on improving the upgrade module. The new versions are regulary released, so make sure to check for updates in your back office. The latest version is 4.16.3. You can read more about the changes in the release notes.

Changes in the developer documentation

In August, there were key updates to our webservices documentation. Community revamped our guide to make it easier to understand. The highlight, however, comes from @thomasnares with the ‘Webservice Product A-Z’ comprehensive guide on how to manage products in PrestaShop using webservices. Big shoutout to all contributors for their efforts! 🎉
