WooCommerce Blocks 2.8 release notes

Today we are releasing WC Blocks 2.8.0! It’s available for download from GitHub and WordPress.org.

Beginning with 2.6.0, in which we included the preview for the Cart and Checkout blocks, WooCommerce Blocks has gone back to a bi-weekly release schedule. This allows us to ship improvements faster and get feedback earlier as a part of the development process.

This release introduces several improvements to how our blocks work with different themes. Blocks will inherit font colors of your theme, as well as interpolate border colors from the text color. Along with several updates and fixes to styles, this release also fixes an issue with Product Categories List block when used on full width, addresses respecting the tax settings in the shipping methods, and adds the ability to use cropped images in the All Products, Cart, Checkout, and All Reviews blocks.
