This post summarizes the dev chat meeting from June 6th (agenda, Slack archive).

WooCommerce 3.1 Beta

  • Beta 2 should be available soon.
  • Still on track for a release at the end of June.
  • Please test the new importer/exporter included in WooCommerce.

Rest API feature plugin

  • API development will now be done in a separate repo.
  • When new API versions are ready they will be merged into WooCommerce and released with the next WooCommerce version.
  • This will enable API development to not be tied to the WooCommerce release schedule.
  • The legacy v1, v2, and v3 APIs will be removed in WooCommerce 4.0.

Extensions version checking

  • Sites had a high amount of errors when people upgraded to WooCommerce 3.0 and were using extensions that were not ready for WooCommerce 3.0.
  • We need to show warnings or programmatically manage extensions that are not compatible with new versions of WooCommerce somehow.
  • An issue has been created on GitHub for this. Please leave feedback or ideas.
