Friday is outside! It’s time to get ready for the weekend rest, completing tossing tons of papers and replying to the insanely large number of emails. Don’t do too much today: leave important things by Monday and learn more from our regular Add-ons on Friday section.

This week we were occupied both by Prestashop and Magento development, which was resulted in Magento Cardboard Mobile Theme and Prestashop Product Links module releases.

Our new theme with cardboard style elements will be the one good choice for retailers dealing with wooden and paper made items. Product Links is a smart front office module that indicates product links to multiple catalogs they belong to on the product page.

Magento Enterprise Premium License

What could you imagine to be the Magento crush of this week? It would be Magento 2.0 alpha version for sure, but a new license coming out is quite an event as well.

Magento Enterprise premium is twice more expensive than its foregoing Magento Enterprise license.  It promises to customers “all the benefits of Magento Enterprise with additional licenses, Magento support, consulting and training” for $44,990 USD per year.

We wonder, what features does the prefix Premium add to an early Magento Enterprise license? Are there many changes in functionality Magento team has lately imported? And, probably, the most important question – where we can test the demo version?
