We are happy to announce the availability of a new build of the WooCommerce Admin feature plugin! If this is the first time you have heard about WooCommerce Admin, it is a new JavaScript-driven interface for managing your WooCommerce stores that is focusing on creating new and improved reports, and a dashboard to monitor all the important key metrics of your site.

You can download version v0.24.0 in the plugin repository or via GitHub right here. If you do test out the plugin, and have some feedback – please do open an issue in the GitHub repository, or reach out to us in the #core channel on WooCommerce slack.

The bulk of this release is dedicated to bug fixing and polishing of WooCommerce Admin and the Onboarding Wizard. As noted in the last release notes post, we have been starting to work on some new documentation for the Dashboard and Analytics tools. You can view those here.

Thank You, and What’s Next?

First a big THANK YOU to everyone that has downloaded a release to test, and also to those of you who have reported bugs. Your input is extremely valuable to us, so please keep testing and let us know if we can help!

The focus of the next release will be in a handful of areas:

  • Documentation – Continued work on Documentation.
  • ActionScheduler – We are also looking to bundle the new 3.0 version of ActionScheduler into the plugin to take advantage of the new custom queue tables it provides.

The next release is scheduled to be the week of January 20th.
