We are pleased to announce the release of WooCommerce 6.0. This release should be backwards compatible with the previous version.
Due to internal process changes, the WooCommerce 6.0 release was delayed by one day. This allowed for us to complete some additional testing, and we don’t anticipate a delay for the WooCommerce 6.1 release.
As always, we recommend creating a backup of your site and making sure that your theme and any other plugins are compatible before updating. You can check out this update guide for more information.
What’s new in 6.0?
WooCommerce Blocks: We’ve updated to the 6.3.3 version of the feature plugin. See the release posts for 6.3.2 and 6.2.0 to find out what’s new.
WooCommerce Admin: We’ve updated to the 2.9.4 version of the feature plugin. See the changelog to find out what’s new.
Product Attribute Filtering: With this release, we are entering the final stages of delivering our revamp of product attribute filtering. We have removed the need for a code snippet to show the feature; both the feature flag and system tool is now available for all merchants.
Rate Limit Table: In order to address the performance issues caused by storing rate limits in the options table, we have created a new table to hold rate limit entries. See #30960 for more details.
These are just some of the changes that are included in WooCommerce 6.0. You can find the complete changelog for this release in the changelog.txt file.
