WooCommerce 5.4 Beta 1

The release cycle for June’s release of WooCommerce 5.4 has begun! A beta.1 package is available for download directly from WordPress.org or through our WooCommerce Beta Tester Plugin.


  • jQuery 3 Compatibility: In preparation for WordPress Core’s plan to update jQuery, we have addressed our usage of it accordingly. (#29044)
  • WooCommerce Blocks 5.1.0: The package update includes 5.0.0 and 5.1.0. Please note that most content included in Blocks updates is not present in WooCommerce unless the WooCommerce Blocks feature plugin is active.
  • WooCommerce Admin 2.3.0: This package update includes a number of fixes and quality of life tweaks.

These are just some of the changes that are included in WooCommerce 5.4. You can view the entire list of included changes in the readme.

Compatibility Changes

Our aim is to maintain backwards compatibility through every release unless otherwise noted. This section contains any alternations that may be noteworthy for developers in pursuit of that.


We’ve added the dates_are_gmt parameter to coupon, product, and order collection endpoints. When true, this parameter causes the after and before date fields to check post_date_gmt instead of the local time variant.

Actions & Filters

There are no changes to actions or filters in this release.


While there are technically no database changes in this release, programmatically enabling and using the product attributes lookup table creation tool will require table creation privileges.


There are no changes to templates in this release.
