    WooCommerce 2.6

    - by GB

    WooCommerce 2.6 was recently released and includes many changes, improvements and fixes. Most notably, WooCommerce now includes “native” support for Shipping Classes — a long requested and very welcome feature.

    Other changes include some UI improvements, with AJAX refreshes for the Cart pages and a nice tabbed interface for the My Account pages. You can read more about the changes on the WooCommerce Dev blog.

    While this is an exciting update for WooCommerce users, there are a few important things to be aware of before you upgrade. This is a major update and should ideally be performed by a web designer or developer who can ensure that everything goes smoothly and recoverable backups are taken before any changes are made.
