PrestaShop gets better with the latest v1.6.1.0 release


PretaShop’s got a new and improved version, and like any other PrestaShop lover I’m excited about it. It got a new puffin mascot too at this PrestaShop day. Not only the latest release v1.6.1.0 looks pretty than its previous versions but there are a whole new bunch of other improvements too.

The major improvements made to this new version of PrestaShop are mentioned below:

  • Improvements to contrast and better visibility to the navigation structure of the back office.
  • New logos, images and design elements have been added to make the admin panel look better.
  • Targeting SQL queries improvements have been made to the overall performance of this shopping cart.
  • PSR-2 coding style has been adopted to maintain the code integrity and make the unit testing easy.
  • For better legal compliance, new features have been added to the advanced EU module so that store owners can easily meet the local EU guidelines.
  • The rounding of prices and tax management has been refined to take the load off from the shoulders of merchants.
  • Major improvements have been made to installation, update and search features too.

You might feel that no made changes have been made, but if you see it from a perspective of a PrestaShop freelancer like me, these enhancements are very pivotal. It will help merchants to have an online store that is better equipped for traffic peaks and can be managed easily.

A great initiative from PrestaShop that begins with this release and which I personally like a lot is the adoption of semantic versioning scheme. Now you will be able to identify all the version releases and the changes made.
