General messages

Dear developers,

We are immensely proud to announce that PrestaShop is feature frozen!!! 🍾️ 🎉️ ☃️

This means that the development of this version has now entered the stabilization phase.

A quick look at the work done so far on 1.7.8:

The last weeks have been intense for all PrestaShop teams but we are very happy about the result… and we hope you will love it too.

The 1.7.8.x branch has been created and any new changes submitted in the develop branch will be milestoned for 1.7.9 .

What are the next steps?

Following the freeze, the QA team will perform a large test campaign to explore the and evaluate how much stabilization it needs.

This test campaign will tell us how ‘mature’ the 1.7.8.x branch, and give us indications about when the Beta period could start.
