General messages

Dear Developpers,

In case you missed, PrestaShop has been released yesterday. For merchants, the Christmas and Holiday periods are not the best time to upgrade. If, however, you are writing themes and modules, if you are a developer in an agency, or a freelance, or anyone else concerned about this new version or with the migration, please download it, install it, test it and report feedback ;-)

Last week, 51 new issues have been created in PrestaShop’s core repository, and 12 fixed issues have been closed.
