WooCommerce 8.7 Beta 2: Addressing Feedback and Fixing Issues

8.7 Beta 2 for the March 1st, 2024 release of WooCommerce is now available for testing! You can either download it directly from WordPress.org or install our WooCommerce Beta Tester Plugin.


Since the release of 8.7 Beta, the following changes have been made:

  • We identified a critical issue in the first beta related to the usage of the LegacyProxy class. This resulted in a fatal error message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Exception: The LegacyProxy class is not intended for getting instances of classes in the src directory, please use init method injection or the instance of Automattic\WooCommerce\Vendor\Psr\Container\ContainerInterface. Fix #45178 ensures the correct usage of the LegacyProxy class and resolves the reported fatal error.
  • We’ve also included a fix #45135 that resolves the crash encountered when using the Product Stock Indicator or On Sale Badge blocks on the homepage

For the complete list of what has been included with 8.7 Beta, view the changelog in the readme.

Database changes

8.7 Beta 2 doesn’t require database changes. However, if you have not upgraded to 8.7 Beta, then the database needs an update.

  1. Hi Ivan,

    In WooCommerce 8.6, access to the Shop Settings in the customize menu has been removed. Is there another page where we can adjust the thumbnail size?


    1. Sorry the issue is occurred when WooCommerce is activated on site and on the network in the same time
