We have just tagged the second release candidate of WooCommerce 2.1. This marks the final stage of the new version and we’re certain it’s as stable as it gets. Just to make sure we haven’t missed anything, we’re going to leave it for everybody to test during the weekend and release the final right after.

Yes, you read that right! The final release of WooCommerce 2.1 is going to be available within 72 hours from now. If we don’t find any show stopping bugs in the next few days, the final will be tagged and made available on WordPress.org around noon UTC on Monday.

If you want to help testing in these final hours, pick up a copy of the code and open an issue if you find anything out of the ordinary. Please always be as detailed as possible about version numbers, steps to reproduce and other information that helps in getting an issue solved as quick as possible. You can also still contribute translations, through our Transifex project, to be included in the final release.

Note for developers: I hope this applies to nobody, but if your plugin or theme relying on WooCommerce is still not made compatible with WooCommerce 2.1, this is the last weekend you can do something about it. Read our beta 1 announcement for all the details that you probably want to check.

Have a great weekend, prepare for an exciting Monday!🙂
