WooCommerce 2.1 is live!

We have just tagged the final WooCommerce 2.1 release on GitHub, made it available on and announced it on our blog. WooCommerce 2.1 is live!

I’d like to thank all our contributors, translators and bug reporters. We really appreciate all your help and couldn’t have done these awesome releases without you guys.

This release ends the 2.1 development cycle and we’re in the grace period before WooCommerce 2.2 development officially starts. We did setup the maintenance branch for 2.1.x fix releases already and also made the master branch the development branch for 2.2. We’ll be closely monitoring any possible issues and fix them on the maintenance branch as soon as possible.

WooCommerce 2.2 development officially starts in March, so we’ll be focussing on fixes only for a couple weeks. There are a lot of issues already assigned to the 2.2 milestone, so there is plenty to work on should you want to contribute to this new release. 🙂

Great release! The REST API really opens up a lot of possibilities for simple integration without out the need of installing plugins for everything. Writes in the API is on the roadmap for 2.2 right?


Congrats to all involved. WooCommerce is maturing rapidly as a very robust eCommerce platform. Looking forward to future developments with the API – this is a game changer!


After the 2.1 update, (with all plugins disabled) none of my products are showing, just 404 pages. The Woocommerce > Settings > Pages tab is gone. The shortcodes:

[woocommerce_pay] – shows the checkout pay page
[woocommerce_thankyou] – shows the order received page
[woocommerce_edit_address] – shows the user account edit address page
[woocommerce_view_order] – shows the user account view order page
[woocommerce_change_password] – shows the change password page
[woocommerce_lost_password] – shows the lost password page

aren’t working and the pages these shortcodes were on have vanished.
