Minor theme updates for WooCommerce 4.6.x

A couple of weeks ago WooCommerce 4.6 was released. This is a minor release so everything should be backwards compatible. It brings updates to the WooCommerce Admin, the latest version of WooCommerce blocks and some fixes and localization improvements.

What’s new

Apart from the latest versions of WooCommerce Admin (1.6.1) and WooCommerce Blocks (3.4.0), all users will now get the new WooCommerce home screen, first introduced back in WooCommerce 4.3. The old setup wizard has been retired, tax classes that contain non-ASCII characters can be assigned to products, and country sorting is improved for languages that use graphic accents.
