General messages

Dear developers,

In case you did not see it, PrestaShop was released last week!

Of course, we always recommended using the latest available version of the 1-Click Upgrade module when upgrading. However, if you are upgrading your shop to 1.7.8 from a version prior to 1.7.6, make sure the module is updated to version 4.12.0 or later.

As usual, it is recommended to be careful before starting to update your website to the latest version:

  • Backup your database and your files
  • Test the update on a testing or pre production server
  • If everything is fine, then update on the production environment

If you notice issues with PrestaShop, you can report it on GitHub and go even further by submitting a pull request to help fix it!

Now that is out, we look forward to the future! Do you want to know more about it? Check what @eternoendless presented during the 9th PrestaShop Public Demo!
