We will discuss the most recent updates of woocommerce in this blog. WooCommerce 3.7 can be downloaded from the official site or can be updated manually from WordPress backend.

What New Features in Woocommerce 3.7 Updates:

In 2019, WooCommerce released two minor updates – version 3.6 and 3.7. Both have in common that they are fully backend compatible. Existing systems should, therefore, have no compatibility issues with these updates – in so far as the correct PHP and WordPress version is respected. Although 3.7 is the smaller update of both, it brings some exciting features with it!

Product Blocks System:

WordPress version 5.0, Gutenberg has been the standard editor for WordPress and has replaced the previous TinyMCE editor. Gutenberg aims to make it easier for website owners to create rich media sites – without page builders or deeper HTML and Javascript knowledge. And to make that work, you need blocks. Lots of blocks.
That’s why WooCommerce already introduced Product Blocks in version 3.6 and now provides us with more Blocks in version 3.7.

New features in product Blocks:

Some of the new updates:
  • • A new Focal Point Picker in Featured Product Block
  • • Searching for products in the “Recommended product” and “Handpicked product” blocks is faster
  • • A new block for product categories
  • • Featured Category Block
  • • New “Products by Tag” block showing products by tag

New Requirements for PHP and WordPress Versions :

In order to use the new blocks, however, WordPress must run on a version 5.1+ or have the latest version of the Gutenberg Editor installed.
With the new release, the requirements for the PHP version have been increased to PHP 5.6. In addition, WordPress 4.9 is required to use the latest version of WooCommerce. It has also been announced that in the next update WordPress 5.0 will be necessary.

Website admins are well-advised to keep WordPress and the plugins in use if they want to use the full range of features.

New Package Management System:

For developers, it should be particularly interesting that with the change to PHP 5.6 PHP packages are used in the future.

New WooCommerce features will be developed in the future as plugins outside the WooCommerce core. For example, the product blocks, as well as the REST API function, have already been removed from the core and published in independent releases.

  • • There are many minor improvements in WooCommerce 3.7, such as:
  • • The wording for the “thank you” e-mail can be changed in the e-mail settings
  • • The coupon code generator has gotten new features
  • • Moved tax classes from using WordPress options to its own wc_tax_rate_classes table for storage.
  • • Template file changes
