General messages

Dear Developers,

It seems this week is off to a great start. :smile:

The first Release Candidate of PrestaShop has finally been delivered yesterday, after multiple weeks spent carefully strengthening and stabilizing it.

This Release Candidate is open for testing for two weeks. On October 5th, if no critical or major regression has been reported, PrestaShop will be delivered as a stable version. Just in the middle of Hacktoberfest 2021

Please help us test this build to make sure this release is a success!

Furthermore, PrestaShop has been released. Don’t forget to update as this patch version fixes one major regression.
