Published by - Himanshu Rehani | 27th Sep 2021

The Prestashop team has finally announced the availability of the first release candidate for version

After a few months of beta testing, the freemium eCommerce platform affirms that this could be the final & stable version that Prestashop development companies can use if no bugs or errors are reported by October 5.

The company also suggests that this is the perfect time to be experimental with this version. And, as a Prestashop partner agency, our Prestashop certified developers are already on their way to scrape all its pros & cons.

What changes have been made?

According to Prestashop and our developers, this release candidate has fixed 60 bugs in total, out of which 13 were major between the beta & RC release period.

The version upgrade from to version had many bugs on the product page as well, though a few of them were reported by our developers.

Nevertheless, it feels good to see that Prestashop take feedbacks seriously and has fixed the reported bugs in this version,

How’s Nethues going to contribute to finishing Prestashop 1.7.8?

We have been offering Prestashop development services for a while now. A vast number of Prestashop eCommerce merchants rely on us for betterments and upgradation of their stores to the latest version.

This consequently makes it our responsibility to respect the mantle of a Prestashop partner agency. Therefore, below are some steps our team of Prestashop developers has decided to undergo in regards to Prestashop version

  • We’re going to test the auto-upgrade plugin.
  • We’ll develop custom modules & themes to test if they work fine on this version.
  • We’ll also examine & check if there’s any regression left post 1.7.7 release.
  • Thereafter, we’ll try to fix the regressions creating a pull request and report them on Prestashop’s GitHub.

Once the testing is done, our team will get in touch with the official Prestashop team’s developers to share the feedback either via mail, their website or through direct communications.
