A few days ago WooCommerce 3.8 was released. The new version brings new product blocks, PHP 7.4 support, a new widget template file and many minor improvements. It is most likely the last minor update for this year and thus it is backwards compatible, you should be able to just update it and continue on with your life. Below we’ll take a brief look at the new features.
Version 3.8 comes with four new product blocks, three review related ones, the reviews by product, reviews by category and the all reviews one, and finally the search products block.
A new template was added which allows modifications on the price filter widget, PHP 7.4 is fully supported by WooCommerce, also a notice has been added which prompts users to update WordPress to v5.0+ and PHP to 7.0+ because the upcoming version 3.9 will bump the minimum requirements.
