thirty bees


You might have noticed I have not been blogging as much lately. Its because we have had our hands full launching a new project. For the last several years we have been discontented with PrestaShop. It hasn't had any new features introduced, just bugs. Then 1.7 has come along, it does not install on most hosts and it is not near stable.
