PrestaShop is now available. This maintenance release closes 19 issues since version (released on November 26th, 2015).

As the version number indicates (as per our SemVer-like versioning), this is the fourth patch release for PrestaShop

Our main motivation for releasing this version was to fix the MySQL 5.7 and PHP 7 compatibility.

As usual, we do not recommend upgrading your store when you are running promotions leading to a high traffic on your website. For those of you in the midst of winter sales: you might want to wait for the end of the Sales period before upgrading!

We hope you enjoy this patch release!
