General messages

Dear developers,

Last Friday maintainer @pululuk, helped by @sowbiba and many others built the ZIP archive for PrestaShop and delivered it to QA team for validation. This is the second time a PrestaShop release is built by someone who is not an employee of PrestaShop company! Congratulations @pululuk!

Another interesting news: thanks to the awesome work of @atomiix, the upgrades between PrestaShop versions using the autoupgrade module are now being run every night and results can be looked at in the Nightly build dashboard

In the meantime, @NeOMakinG also upgraded the jQuery version to v3.5 for Classic Theme and default Back Office theme.

The next step for release is now QA validation. Release is expected to happen at the latest on next Monday (22th of February).
