Should you upgrade to Prestashop 1.5.4?

29 March

Every new Prestashop version raises similar questions and doubts. Process for upgrading Prestashop to latest version is always the same, but should you upgrade to Prestashop 1.5.4?

Each new version of any open source system has its life and new versions from time to time. Prestashop 1.5 is already mature enough so it doesn’t have any big security issues or bugs that need to be fixed. From that point of stand, you should be ok. On the other hand, Prestashop 1.5.4 comes with over 400 upgrades and changes, most of them in back office. Important changes are:

  • Back office improvements for easy navigation on all devices.
  • Merchant expertise module that helps merchant track and develop their activities.
  • Improved order funnel for customers that will cut % of lost customers.
  • Users can set preferred language on their own.
Complete changelog can be found here.

Summary: if you have some older version of Prestashop (1.4.x, 1.5.0-1.5.1), you should upgrade for security reasons. Newer Prestashop versions have lots of issues fixed and your web store could be at risk. If you have Prestashop 1.5.3 you don’t have to do upgrade as Prestashop 1.5.3 and 1.5.3.1 are very stable releases. But it is advisable to upgrade to Prestashop 1.5.4. If you decide to upgrade to Prestashop 1.5.4, please follow these instructions.
