WooCommerce Blocks 7.4.0, 7.4.1 & 7.4.2 Release Notes

A new version of WooCommerce Blocks has been released! Version 7.4.2 is now available for download from GitHub and WordPress.org.

This release introduces the new Cart & Checkout Inner Blocks architecture and contains a Filter Products by Price improvement, and some bug fixes.

Cart & Checkout: Customization & Extensibility

In making the Cart & Checkout blocks more customizable, we are working on breaking them down into inner blocks. This will allow us to insert, move, edit & optimize each inner block:

  • Insert: Inserting blocks into available areas in the block, just like you would insert a regular block.
  • Move: Using the native, accessible moving API that Gutenberg exposes.
  • Edit: Every step and third-party section is a full-fledged block with its settings and editing capabilities.
  • Optimize: The checkout experience by safeguarding the checkout flow and order.

You can test the power of Inner Blocks with the Cart Block and Checkout Block “order summary” new structure:

Cart block after:
