This feature is available in master branch. If you find the feature is useful in the next release, we encourage you to checkout the branch, test it, and report any issues to our GitHub’s issues tracker.

This might not be the place for this question…if so I apologize.
I can’t seem to locate anywhere a rough calendar for WC releases? Is 2.5 targeted before year end? Q1 of next year?


I’m trying to use this with WordPress 4.4.2 and WooCommerce 2.5.2.

All I can get is: Error: ‘wc’ is not a registered wp command.

Has it been added yet, or has it been delayed?


Nevermind. I discovered the problem. WP Fastest Cache is not compatible with wp-cli. Once I disabled that, all my woes went away. I’ve posted to their support forum asking if they plan to fix it.
