WooCommerce 2.5 Release Candidate

The release candidate for WooCommerce 2.5 is now available.

RC means we think we’re done, but with thousands of users and hundreds of plugins and themes with WooCommerce support, it’s possible we’ve missed something. We hope to ship WooCommerce 2.5.0 on Monday, January 18, but we need your help to get there.

If you haven’t tested WC 2.5 yet, now is the time!

We’ve made ~100 changes since release beta 3 three weeks ago. Mostly small fixes, including:

  • Correcting Malaysian states.
  • Filtering non-images out of product image galleries.
  • Moved terms checkboxes logically before place order buttons.
  • Fixed sanitization of shipping tax class names.
  • Tweaked save logic for variable products.
  • Correctly hide attributes from quick edit.
  • Fixed some wc_var_price transient issues.

Think you’ve found a bug? Please post in detail to Github.

To test WooCommerce 2.5 RC1, you can use our WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin or you can download the release candidate here (zip).

For more information about what’s new in 2.5, check out Beta 1, beta 2 and beta 3 blog posts.

Developers, please test your plugins and themes against WooCommerce 2.5 before next week. If you find compatibility problems, we never want to break things, so please be sure to post to Github so we can figure those out before the final release.

Translators, it is important than we translate 100% of the WooCommerce 2.5 strings so translations are downloaded automatically on update. Your help is most welcome! See more in Time to start translating WooCommerce 2.5.

Me again, with another question. What does “Tweaked save logic for variable products” mean, exactly? I would like to test that, but I would need to know what I should be looking for. Thanks. 🙂


I can’t find out who’s the Danish editor? I’ve translated some strings but they’re just waiting. Can you help me how translation works on

One more thing: there’s a DEV and STABLE translation. I’ve translated all the untranslated strings under DEV, but they also appears as duplicates under STABLE. Should they be translated again or will you pull them from DEV?
