A Month of Sylius #3 (September 2017)
Hi everyone! The most important month in Sylius history so far is already behind us. As you know, v1.0.0 was released on 13th of September. We needed some rest after these intense days, but now we’re getting back to you with even more power.
As it happens with a stable version of every software, at the beginning there are many issues to work on - some rules & coding standards have to be set.
