Note: Starting this week, the news will be primarily WooCommerce core, with some updates in the Woo Community, as available. For the news around WordPress core, I will be referring you to the new This Week at WordPress.org via PostStatus.com
WooCommerce Core News
Can you believe that? Time does fly when you are doing the Woo. But seriously, WooCommerce has done an amazing job of growth over the period of a decade. In the post Paul Maiorana takes you through a brief history starting when WooCommerce was just a sparkle in the eye of WooThemes. Check it out and join the celebration.
Staying on the track for the October 12th release, this beta includes the latest changes that shipped in 5.7.1. In addition, it includes WooCommerce Block 5.9.1 and WooCommerce Admin 2.7.1 RC 1.
Wednesday 6.0.1 was released with a load of new features including a new Terms and Conditions block, an updated Checkout Block, new extensibility for filtering payment methods, global styles for review blocks and a bunch of bug fixes. Following up on that, Thursday, 6.0.2 was pushed out as a patch release to fix a fatal error in websites that were running WooCommerce 5.6 or earlier, WooCommerce Blocks 6.0.0/6.0.1, and a third-party plugin that integrates with WooCommerce Blocks.
News in the Woo Community
Aelia.co, a well-respected plugin shop for WooCommerce, has relaunched, with what owner Diego describes as a cleaner look. He has moved all his products to Freemius which he says is because of his need to implement a custom solution to manage licences and automatic updates as well as helping him with the migration to Brexit. As part of the migration, he also implemented a new plugin to automate the integration between WooCommerce and Freemius. Make sure and check out his new look at Aelia.co.
