In case you missed it, WordPress eCommerce WooCommerce 3.6 was released last week with two key features to make your store load faster and provide a more engaging experience for your customers:
- Performance improvements
- WooCommerce Product Blocks
WooCommerce 3.6 is more performant on both customer-facing and administrative pages. These improvements are built upon a new Product Data Lookup Table which makes key pieces of data about products more efficient to query.
The end result is speed – a key metric for page ranking and customer happiness.
WooCommerce Product Blocks
Eight new blocks allow you to integrate content and commerce by featuring products on posts and pages.
Are You Ready for 3.6?
WooCommerce 3.6 is considered a minor release, meaning it should be fully backwards compatible as with all WooCommerce releases since 3.0.
Though, as always, we highly recommend that you install the latest version following the best practice of first testing the update in a staging environment, rather than on your live store.
