Since our last minor release in May, we’ve been working on a variety of improvements to WooCommerce:
- REST API v3
- Improved copy for transactional emails
To ensure this update is stable, we’ve been doing plenty of testing and QA on our side including a public beta period, unit and integration testing, compatibility testing with our extensions and popular premium themes, running the latest version on WooCommerce.com, and working with customers to do managed updates.
WooCommerce 3.5 is a minor release, meaning it should be fully backwards compatible with all WooCommerce releases since 3.0. However, it’s still considered best practice, and recommended, to backup before updating.
