This edition of the Core Weekly report highlights changes in PrestaShop core codebase during the last week, from Monday 29th of June to Sunday 5th of July, 2015.


PrestaShop has been released! Go download the latest version of PrestaShop, or read our own little celebratory post!

One important part of version is the addition of the Advanced EU Compliance module, which helps merchants make their shops compliant with the recent, more restrictive EU regulations. Want to learn why and how we built it? Read Thibaud’s article here!

Now that v1.6.1.0 is released, make sure to get acquainted with the project evolution that developers will soon be able to profit from: dropping support for PHP 5.2 and 5.3, benchmarking the performance improvements in, switching to a more semantic versioning scheme, adopting the PSR-2 Coding Style Guide, and, last but certainly not least, the forthcoming architecture improvements.

The team is already at work on the next versions of PrestaShop!

  • We reached PR 3333, and Content Manager Alex Even won that PR :)
  • In PR 3283, Core developer Xavier Gouley update the Delivery, Order Return and Credit Slip PDF templates to fit with the new template style.
