Today, the Team PrestaShop has released the Beta Test PretaShop 1.7 Alpha 3 which will lead to an official version in a few weeks. This version can not be used to create a e-store, it is just a test in order to identify the differents bugs and the potential improvements that can be made. To give your feedback on those elements you can create a ticket on the 1.7 Forge project. The Team Prestashop is going to release a beta and a Release Candidate (RC) before releasing the final stable version.
What is new ?
- Create a theme easily : a new starter theme to help designers to personalize their theme quickly, and a new default theme which is clean and efficient.
- Improvements of the back office : an onboarding system has been added for first time users, the processus of the creation of a product has been simplified, the modules page has been improved to identify easily the installed modules.
- Improvements of the administation interface and of the menu structure to allow e-merchants to access quickly the most used functions.
- A new architecture based on Symfony2
This version is not definitive, so there are a lot of elements which are still in developpement.
