This fix release is a preparation for the upcoming 5.0 release and corrects the messaging of update notices to align them with the recently adopted versioning schema. Since going from 4.9 to 5.0 is not considered a breaking or major release anymore, we’ve decided to remove the extra warnings WooCommerce core previously added. Thus, it should prevent confusion and provide a more seamless upgrade experience to all users who upgrade to 4.9.2.
The warnings in the plugin and System Status screens are thus are no longer relevant and have been removed:
This release contains only a single change:
- Deactivate untested plugins’ notices on major releases. #28840
