General messages

Dear developers,

Have you tested the first Release Candidate of PrestaShop Now is the best time to download and test this RC version as a test store! The later a problem is identified, the more time it takes to be fixed, and this delays the final release.

In the meantime, you might want to have a look at (and join?) these interesting discussions:

  • ADR 15: discussing how to split business logic from DOM management in JavaScript classes and components
  • Issue 25975: what should we do with the Front-Office theme for PrestaShop 8.0.0 ?
