The current release cycle​

 

Keen readers of the Build devblog are aware that the last few releases have been dedicated to fixing issues and stabilizing both major versions of PrestaShop:

  • PrestaShop 1.7.0.0 was released on November 7th, 2016, and has since received 4 patch versions – with the 5th coming very soon!
  • PrestaShop 1.6 is in maintenance mode, and 5 patch versions have been released since September – with 1.6.1.12 coming soon too!

Our plan for 2017

As written above, we’ve been releasing patch releases for both supported version of PrestaShop roughly every month. We plan on keeping that release schedule for patch versions: one each month for both 1.7 and 1.6.

 

What’s it gonna be?

So, two new minor versions before summer, and 2 other by year’s end, great!

We have a pretty clear idea of what we want them to be. Here is a bird’s eye view:

1.7.1.0:

  • Should be released in March 2017.
  • Main projects:
  1. General stability and feature improvement.
  2. 1.6-to-1.7 upgrader.
  3. Improved translation scope.

1.7.2.0:

  • Should be released in June 2017.
  • Main projects:
  1. Reworked Advanced Stock Management feature.
  2. More to come!

1.7.3.0:

  • Should be released in September 2017.
  • Main projects to be determined.
