WooCommerce 4.7 is now available!

We are excited to announce that WooCommerce 4.7 is now publicly available! It has been in development since October 2020 and has been updated with 393 commits from 22 contributors.

This is a minor release, which means everything is backward compatible with the previous version.

Black Friday is coming up and we’re keeping this release small, focusing on stability and compatibility, with most of the updates being fixes.

As always, we recommend creating a backup of your site and making sure that themes and plugins are compatible before updating. You can check out this update guide for more information.
