Almost every month, we find Shopware ready with a new release, which makes it easier for developers and merchants to use this eCommerce platform to build an online presence for their business. This time, the major release of Shopware 6.5 will soon be within your reach. But firstly, the brand has availed a beta version of the release candidate (RC), letting developers test its pre-release version and leave feedback for improvement. 

How to Give Feedback for Beta Version of Release Candidate (RC)?

Shopware has set up a unique Slack Channel to let developers put feedback and questions (if any) about the release candidate. 

Make Your App Be Set for the Upcoming Release

The manufacturers should take this RC phase as the high time to make their plug-in system-based apps compatible until the Shopware 6.5 final release. Here, Rector can lend a helping hand. You can use this tool to upgrade and refactor your app’s PHP code. 

What to Expect Post the Final Release of RC?

Well, until the final release of RC, no features will be added; only bug fixing will be accomplished. So, with the RC, you already hold a sketch of the Shopware 6.5 final version, almost.
