Community Chat #7 Notes

We hosted 7th edition of WooCommerce community chat on 27 February earlier this year. This was day after release candidate launch of WooCommerce 4.0. You can read the full backscroll on this slack link (which may expire very soon) or read on the notes below.

We hosts these chats on WooCommerce Community Slack in #core channel. If you do not already have access to this group, you can request an invite!

WooCommerce 4.0

We started the chat by discussing incoming 4.0 release and chatted a bit around major changes going to be included in the release, notably the action scheduler update. We are also posting some awesome testing instructions for the past few releases now (h/t Julia and Tam) which will hopefully help in testing beta and release candidates.

Flat tables

Discussion about the custom (flat) product and order tables also made a cameo in the chat. Unfortunately, while the progress is not stopped, its also not super fast. Hopefully, we will have some good news soon.

PR Merge Process

We also talked a bit about the PR merge process and how to know which PRs are going to be included in the next release. Generally, we aim to merge the PRs in the release which is tagged with a milestone for that release.

Once the beta is released, we do not merge feature PRs for that release, but we try to include any high priority bug fixes even late in the release process.

WooCommerce Payments

We also talked about WooCommerce Payments, which is in beta as of this writing. When available, it would be possible to manage payments from inside WooCommerce Dashboard.

Till the next one!

Thanks again to all whom attended. If you have any ideas on how to make our chats more helpful, or if you have a question/topic you would like to discuss, please leave a note in the comments below.

While this concluded our chat, stay tuned for announcement about the next one.

      Hi Ajin, this depends on your language setting, cart is used in the en_US while other English variants might use basket. You can either change the English variant or use a translation plugin like Loco translate to update this one string yourself. For more information, please see our docs:
