Upcoming PHP Requirement Change
While 7.9.0 continues to support PHP 7.3, we want to remind you of an announcement we made recently regarding the upcoming change that will require PHP 7.4 beginning with WooCommerce 8.2.0.
If you’re currently using PHP 7.3, this release adds a dismissible notice reminding you of the upcoming change (#38604).
We’re on track for our planned June 11 release.
