Optimization, performance and functionality are the major themes in this release

A few months ago we introduced you to PrestaShop 1.7, a major release that featured big improvements to the user experience. Today, we’re very happy to announce the availability of PrestaShop 1.7.1.0! Thanks to the feedback from our user community and hard work from our product team, there are over 480 improvements (pull requests) in this new release. Here is an overview of PrestaShop 1.7.1.0:

More 1.6 modules are now available in version 1.7.1.0

Several modules that were in 1.6 are now available for 1.7 including:

–       the Best Sales module
–       the New Products module
–       the Cross-Selling module
–       the PayPal module

Optimized back-office navigation for mobile

We did a lot of work to improve the responsiveness of back-office browsing. This means that you can easily browse your back-office from all mobile devices. In addition, we’ve reworked the shortcut keys to make them more intuitive.

1-click upgrades from 1.6 and 1.7.
If you have a PrestaShop store running on 1.6 or 1.7, we now have a 1-click upgrade so you can migrate your existing store to version 1.7.1.0. Please see our dedicated blog article for more information about this process.

Numerous improvements for contributors to PrestaShop

Version 1.7.1.0 has several important improvements to the way that translations are managed. For developers, multiple new hooks have been added, and we made a number of enhancements to the Starter Theme. To see a full list of the improvements for contributors, please visit our tech blog.

The update module makes the move from version 1.6 to 1.7 easier.

The ‘upgrade all modules’ button is now included in 1.7.1. Updating modules individually was time consuming, particularly when an update was available for many modules. With version 1.7.1, you can update all modules with a single-click.

Finally, we’ve improved the overall performance of 1.7.1, and the release is now available in 7 languages, with more on the way.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the 69 contributors from around the world who made the 1.7.1 our best version ever. We couldn’t do all of this without you! If you would like to take part in future release testing, please register with our User Club.
