General messages

Dear developers,

In case you missed it, we moved the next Public OSS Demo session date to Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 4pm CEST. We noticed that 2pm CEST was a little early in the morning for people watching us live from the Americas, so we decided that future sessions will start two hours later — at 4pm. We hope this will encourage more of our community to watch the demo live and discuss with us :smile:

Also we are really proud to announce that PrestaShop Core is compatible with PHP 8.0 in the develop branch thanks to @atomiix. The full project is not entirely compliant with PHP 8 yet (some modules need dependencies updates) but this is a major milestone for PrestaShop, just in time to greet the first beta of PHP 8.1 that was released on July 22!
