General messages

Dear Developers,

Last week, two new repositories have been added to the PrestaShop project on GitHub:

  • PhpPsInfo, a tool to check if a server has all Apache and PHP prerequisites before starting to install a PrestaShop online store on it
  • Circuit Breaker, a library that allows applications to better handle cases when third party services (payment solutions, solutions using the webservices/API, Addons, …) go offline. It will be progressively introduced in PrestaShop and its modules.

As usual, your feedback is welcome.

A quick update about PrestaShop’s GitHub issues and pull requests:
