Yes indeed, we have been mentionning v18.104.22.168 since May but, y’know, with the lifting work necessary to get PrestaShop 1.7 Beta 1 off the ground, the 22.214.171.124 release had to be delayed a bit. Here it is at last!
As the version number indicates (as per our SemVer-like versioning), this is the 6th patch release for PrestaShop 126.96.36.199.
As usual, if you are currently running promotions leading to high traffic on your website, we recommend that you wait for the promotion to end before attempting any upgrade and technical change to your store.
We hope you enjoy this new patch release!

- WS: Compatibility fox for PHP 5.2, 5.3 and 7.0.
- PDF: Pagination is now implemented for all PDF types.
- Tests: Fix for PHP7.

The PrestaShop 188.8.131.52 changelog is available.
Since version 184.108.40.206 is a “patch” update to version 220.127.116.11, upgrading from that version will be as smooth as silk for everyone: features will work better, and modules & themes which worked fine on 18.104.22.168 will work just as well with 22.214.171.124.
This release had 13 contributors, both from PrestaShop and from the Community at large.
A huge “thank you!” to each of the 7 outside contributors, who gave their time and knowledge for the benefit of the whole PrestaShop community! You too can contribute to the next version!
Let’s go, upgrade your store(s)! Upgrading from 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52 is completely safe, upgrades from a standard 1.6.0.x version should work just as well, and those upgrading from version 1.5, 1.4 or even 1.3 should take their time and pay attention to their modules, their theme and their custom modifications!
