With our target release date of May 5th rapidly approaching, we are happy to announce that RC.1 is now available!
Stock Reservation Revert
As they are, database delta updates can result in silent failures in a merchant’s shop. If the MySQL user does not have table manipulation privileges, anything that relies on changes made to the schema will break. In our current case, when the
wc_reserved_stock table is missing, checkout can become non-functional. In the interest of helping protect our merchants from these kinds of failures, we’ve reverted the change slated for 4.1 in order to make it more resilient before shipping it.
To test it, use our beta tester plugin (which, despite its name, can also be used to test release candidates) or download the release from wordpress.org. If you’re itching to learn what’s inside, check out the beta announcement post — it highlights all the new features and improvements.
