Do the Woo news is updates on WooCommerce Core, WordPress core, and a few Woo odds and ends.
WooCommerce Core News
The latest version of WooCommerce blocks is out. With it comes the new block Filters by Stock. When used with the All Products block, it allows you to give customers the ability to filter the visible products by the stock status for the product. In addition a fix has been made for the Product Category block that removed the extra lines that were appearing when used on the shop page. There were also a couple of enhancements and bug fixes as well.
This post is worth a visit. It is filled with information on the next iteration of the Woo blocks, now and beyond. Way too much to encapsulate here on the news but do check it out as it is derived from feedback via merchants and developers that have given WooCommerce a lot of direction on what they have been building and working towards.
Included in an upcoming release of the Action Scheduler, there are plans to raise the minimum WordPress requirements to 5.2 and PHP requirements to 5.6. In this post they share how it will affect you and the actions you should take.
