OXID eShop v7.0.0 release candidate 1 is publicly available. You may find it tagged as https://github.com/OXID-eSales/oxideshop_metapackage_ce/releases/tag/v7.0.0-rc.1 on GitHub.
A „stable“ version is much more than just a software package, as for example compatible modules, documentation for this series, content of OXID Academy, tools for updating etc. need to be prepared and shipped as well. All this is planned to be released step by step in the next months. However, OXID eShop v7.0.0 RC1 presently is in a state of feature freeze, no more important changes, just bug fixes will be done.
Although still work in progress, the developer documentation may already give some great insights. Take a look at it!
