Should I upgrade?

I have personally tested PrestaShop 8.0.1 and it still needs work.
At the current moment I am writting this I did not tried the 8.1 Beta
They are working fast, I mean really fast. They are putting all the effords to the brand new 8!
But. No I would not migrate to 8 yet. I would wait for a few major releases and then migrate to it!

I will let you know when I beleive it is time!

The good news are that migrating from 1.7.8 to 8  is easy!
