The latest and greatest version of the world’s most popular CMS, WordPress v4.4 is now available!
The WordPress.org blog post has details of what’s new in WordPress 4.4. Generally speaking, this update doesn’t include many changes that WP Admin users will notice — most of the changes in WordPress 4.4 are under the hood (though, they are very exciting changes, none-the-less).
We have already begun testing this version and a few earlier adopter WP NET users will receive the update shortly. Other sites may need to wait a little longer while we test and do the best we can to ensure a smooth upgrade.
WooCommerce sites do take longer to test than others, as there are quite a variety of WooCommerce versions being run on our servers and we need to ensure that they either will run WordPress 4.4. OK, or get upgraded to support it.
We do anticipate some possible issues with WordPress 4.4 and Woocommerce less than version 2.4 – we will conduct testing and advise Woocommerce users on suggested course of action. For WooCommerce users, now is a good time to check with your theme author and see if they have an update available which is tested for support of WordPress 4.4 and WooCommerce 2.4.x.
