On April 4 will release the new version of WooCommerce platform according to statements by the project manager Mike Jolley. Who said that the WooCommerce 2.7 renamed WooCommerce 3.0.0. During the phase of beta testing of version 2.7, the test team found a significant error on time-stamps and decided to proceed with significant changes and larger improvements, to which accounts for the change in the version number from 2.7 to 3.0.0.
Starting with version 3.0.0 WooCommerce the project will use semantic versioning or SenVer. Semantic management issues defines three digit numbers per issue, it is to be able to distinguish the size and type of the upgrade of the platform based on the change of the digit. If there is a change in the first place we have wide upgrade by adding new API, if you change the second number we usually smaller upgrade but which is compatible with the oldest versions which has backwards-compatible and when we change the third digit usually we have a small-change information that simply corrects some minor errors or errors.
Smooth transition to the new version, it was decided to give the community the demo WooCommerce 3.0.0 RC2 for control, one week in the beginning but in the process it was considered appropriate to allow more time, two weeks still room. As for testing the beta version had been given three months to community control. This new extension for the two weeks came the best moment and WooCommerce community welcomed this new enthusiasm. Characteristic announcements of the impending release of the new version you can see on the official community forum.
We anticipate the release of new version of WooCommerce 3.0.0 which will be available in the WordPress control panel on April 4.
