WooCommerce Blocks 9.5.0 Release Notes

A new version of WooCommerce Blocks has been released! Version 9.5.0 is now available for download from GitHub and WordPress.org.

Notable changes

Support for Style Book

Gutenberg 14.8 introduced Style Book, which allows merchants, web developers and site admins to preview individual blocks. With the WooCommerce Blocks 9.5.0 release, the Featured Product and the Featured Category blocks are available here. This will enable the preview of any global style changes applied to these blocks.

Global Styles

Besides previewing blocks within the Style Book, we also migrated various blocks away from hardcoded CSS towards Global Styles. Since WooCommerce Blocks 9.5.0, the Product Button, Product Rating, and Product Price blocks utilise Global Styles.

In addition to the Story Book and Global Styles improvements, we’re thrilled to introduce the following new blocks:

  • Store Breadcrumbs block: Provides a clear and easy-to-follow navigation trail, allowing users to quickly understand their location within the store and facilitating navigation to previous sections.
