This was quite the week. A few days ago we announced the decision to reversion and release 2.7 as 3.0.0. This was due to finding a critical bug in the way the system handles timestamps, which wasn’t caught sooner, and requests from third-party extension developers for more testing time. At the same time we chose to adopt semantic versioning going forward to make releases clearer. Today, the release candidate for WooCommerce 3.0.0 “Bionic Butterfly” is available!
Shipping a release candidate (RC) means we think we’re done but, with hundreds of thousands of stores and so many plugins and themes, it’s possible we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WooCommerce 3.0.0 on Tuesday, April 4th but we need your help to get there!
To test WooCommerce 3.0.0 RC1, you can use our WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin or you can download the release candidate here (zip).
Since 3.0.0 is now in release candidate stage, only bug fixes will be made. No other changes should take place.
