Prestashop 1.7 informations
1. Prestashop 1.7 is not really ready for production site yet, it still have some bugs to solve and there is still needed time to all mercharnat related modules will be ported to ps 1.7 like paypal payment etc 2. Prestashop 1.7 have no backward compatibility with old version. Entire theme will be rewritten from scratch. A lot of modules will be also rewritten from scratch ( I already started to work on that). I will also rethink many aspect of theme and you can expect new features and general improvements. But I'm sorry I'm not able to share with you with more detailed plans at the moment. What it means? That there will be no easy update from 1.6 to 1.7. It means that it will be needed to remove and uninstall current iqit modules and install theme again in version for ps 1.7. Also other 3-part modules you currently use in your prestashop will be not compatible, you will need to update them. 3. When I will publish Warehouse theme for ps 1.7? It is hard to share with precise date, I'm working very hard to deliver it as soon as possible, It is already in development from September. Beta version It is planned on end of March, but do NOT consider this date as guaranteed realase date. 5. Once it will calm down (ps 1.7 will become stable and tested, there will be know update path for 1.6 to 1.7 and when 3-part modules will be compatible) I think it will be worth to upgrade since ps 1.7 looks promising and there will be also great improvements in theme. But you must be aware that migration from ps 1.6 to 1.7 will be not easy, it will be probably harder than migration from ps 1.5 to 1.6.
