WooCommerce 4.0 release date is approaching and we are happy to make the second release candidate for it available now.

To test it out, use our beta tester plugin (which, despite its name, can also be used to test release candidates) or download the release from wordpress.org.

We’re publishing another release candidate as we’ve decided to revert the change that was hiding WordPress notices under the Notices button in the Activity panel. While we want the experience for shop owners to be as free from distractions as possible, we also want to be good citizens of the WordPress ecosystem, hence the change.

We’re also including fixes for new Jetpack versions and security fixes from version 3.9.3.

We still plan to unveil the final version of WooCommerce 4.0 next Tuesday, March 10th, but if you would like to learn what’s inside, check out the beta announcement post–it highlights all the new features and improvements.

If you find any bugs along the way, please open an issue in our GitHub repository. Thank you for testing and helping us make WooCommerce better!
