We’re excited to announce that the first release candidate is now available for WooCommerce 5.8. We are on track for our planned October 12th release date.


Since the beta release, the following changes have been made:

  • The latest changes that shipped in our recent 5.7.1 release have been included.
  • WooCommerce Admin is now 2.7.1 RC 1.
  • WooCommerce Blocks is now 5.9.1.


If you’d like to dive in and help test this new release, our handy WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin allows you to switch between beta versions and release candidates. You can also download the release from wordpress.org.

A set of testing instructions has been published on our Wiki page in GitHub. We’ve also posted a helpful writeup on beta testing to help get you started.

If you discover any bugs during the testing process, please let us know by logging a report in GitHub.
