WooCommerce 4.6.0 Release Candidate

After releasing the beta version last week we found a few issues that needed fixing. We fixed those issues and are moving ahead according to the plan. We’re excited to announce that the release candidate is now available! We are on track for our planned October 13 WooCommerce 4.6 final release date.


Since the beta version, the following fixes were added:

  • Redirect users to setup wizard when WooCommerce is activated (#5214 and #5230).
  • Enlarged store profiler text in two steps (#5194).
  • Bug where sometimes the task list would not vanish after being completed (#5205).


If you’d like to dive in and help test this new release, our handy WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin allows you to switch between beta versions and release candidates. You can also download the release from wordpress.org.

A set of testing instructions has been published on our Wiki page in GitHub. We’ve also posted a helpful writeup on beta testing to help get you started.

If you discover any bugs during the testing process, please let us know by logging a report in GitHub.

Thanks to all of our testers and contributors!
