Today, the release candidate for WooCommerce 3.1 is available! 3.1 is a minor release with several improvements and some new features, including a new CSV importer for products.

Shipping a release candidate (RC) means we think we’re done but we’d like your help testing in case we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WooCommerce 3.1 on Wednesday, June 28th.

To test WooCommerce 3.1 RC1, you can use our WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin or you can download the release candidate here (zip).

Since 3.1 is now in release candidate stage, only bug fixes will be made. No other changes should take place.

Think you’ve found a bug? Please post in detail to Github.

For more information about what’s new in 3.1, check out the beta 1 announcement.


Developers, 3.1 is a minor release, so it should be fully backwards compatible. Despite this, it’s still a good idea to test your plugins and themes and help us catch any issues we may have missed before the final release.
