Testing

To test WooCommerce 3.6 RC3, you can use our WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin or you can download the release candidate here (zip).

Since 3.6 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.

Developers, 3.6 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.
