General messages

Dear developers,

PrestaShop has been released last week because a critical regression impacting hooks was detected in release.

We suggest upgrading your store quickly to benefit from the bug fixes of this patch version. As usual, make sure to perform a full manual backup before, so you can roll back the upgrade if something goes wrong.

In the meantime, the Hummingbird theme is showing some good progress! A storybook has been released and will be completed over time.

Please remember that your feedback on the project is welcome, so don’t hesitate to join us on slack. The community is being regularly consulted there to make sure that topics like this new theme will meet the expectations and needs of everyone.
