We’re excited to announce that the first release candidate for WooCommerce 6.5 is now available. We are currently on track for our planned May 10, 2022 release date.


Since the beta release, the following change has been made:

  • Changes to reduce the risk of admin error messages being discarded prematurely. (#32540)
  • Fixing bug on sectioned task list for tasks with actionUrl property. (#32723)
  • Addressing issues with certain tasks in task list experiment leading to blank page. (#32742)


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.
