I’ve been a fan of WooCommerce for a while now and am excited that they went with a new version release as opposed to rolling out 1.7.
Here are my favorite aspects of the new version:
- Improved product data panel
- Easier to edit email templates
- More robust tax options
- Realtime validation in checkout process
- Order items are no longer a serialized, but in their own table
- API Improvements
A few notes if you’re upgrading. They really emphasize running in a test environment first. You can download the new version from wordpress.org. Here are the docs on upgrading to 2.0.
Way to go WooThemes, thanks for you awesomeness!
