We know that you expect it and the 18 PrestaShop developers of the solution and the whole team are working hard to bring you the best 1.5 final version as soon as possible.
Throughout the development process, many features have been added to those we had anticipated when the developments of version 1.5 began. These features, which will be very useful for every shop and the whole community, delayed this release.
We want to offer to current and future merchants, web agencies, developers, web designers, etc. a powerful version that is easy to use and it is for these reasons that the delays have lengthened. A test and quality department of 4 persons has been established within the PrestaShop team to be absolutely sure that the version offered to the community is stable and usable by all as soon as possible.
On the advice of this test and quality department, we let ourselves at least a couple of months to develop, stabilize and improve the version 1.5 Beta and present you with a powerful RC version for all uses. We are counting on you to help us finalize this version, your contributions can help us go faster! Several agencies, vendors and developers are already involved in optimizing this version on a daily basis, and you can do the same. Your support is crucial at this stage of the project.
We are currently defining a precise release date and rest assured, we will announce this soon. A new 1.5 Beta version is available today for testing purposes.
We will continue to regularly publish new Beta versions and will keep you posted of our progress. In the meantime, please feel free to use version 1.4.7 for your live stores.
Thank you for your patience. Please join us on the forums and the Forge to interact with the PrestaShop team. We are counting on the entire community to help us make this 1.5 release an amazing leap in e-commerce software!
