Work continues on 2.3 and we’re getting closer to the final release. We’re expecting to have a release candidate out within a week, so don’t forget to test your extensions and themes!

Changes Since Beta 1

You can view a comparison between beta 1 and master here, but notable changes include:

  • Added the WC Tracker (opt-in usage tracking)
  • Added additional filters/args to wc_price function and added functions to get things such as the decimal separator (wc_get_price_thousand_separator, wc_get_price_decimal_separator, wc_get_price_decimals)
  • Fixed issues showing variation prices when free
  • wc_format_content() function to work around some theme conflicts
  • PDT vs IPN option in PayPal standard

We’ve also updated the API docs here:

Help Document the REST API

Can’t even freaking tell you how happy I am to find this. My perma-links were busted to hell. I had imported 350 products, trashed wordpress three times and got no help on my support ticket. Then I find the most obscure google search result that led me here………… SAVED MY SANITY. ❤ xoxoxo
