PrestaShop is proud to announce v1.5 RC2 is now available to download!
Our development team made 570 fixes to v1.5 RC1 since making it public a few weeks ago, and RC2 is now very stable.
Our Community can continue to develop modules and build their e-commerce shops with v1.5, it will take just a little longer before the final version goes public. Please keep in mind that the most important thing for us is your feedback as it will help to make our new software perfect!
Some of the new features you can expect with PrestaShop v1.5 are:
Multistore Management – Multistore will allow any merchant, regardless of shop size, to manage multiple stores from a single Back Office.
New Modules API – API structure has been revised to help you simply and efficiently manage updates to all of your modules. The API's automatically check to ensure you always have the latest versions.
Cart pricing rules -- Manage your cart's pricing rules easily, with an ergonomic interface for any merchant. Now it will be easy to provide discounts on items in your customer's cart. A convenient way to make promotional offers stand out to your customers (e.g. Buy two items, get the third for one dollar...)
Place or modify orders from the Back-office - This feature allows merchants to help customers over the phone and place the order for them.
Tons of additional features and optimizations are also available with v1.5, including a new design for the admin panel, a more advanced stock management tool and an improved customer service system... just to name a few!
