WooCommerce 5.5.2 is available now. This release resolves performance degradation issues and fixes several bugs identified in 5.5.0 and 5.5.1. These updates are unrelated to the recent security vulnerability that was solved by WooCommerce 5.5.1.

Here’s what’s new:

  1. Solved: Non-performant query in 5.5.1 causing performance issues in admin pages.
  2. Solved: Search query not showing expected results with few themes and plugins.
  3. New: Added a fallback for shops to use redirect download method as well incase force download method did not work.
  4. Solved: $screen null fatal with few plugins.

Important: With the release of this new version, the auto-update process for WooCommerce 5.5.1 mentioned in this blog post has been discontinued. If you are still running a version of WooCommerce that is not on the patched versions list, please update immediately to the highest version available in your release branch.
