This release is mostly about smoothing some rough edges, but it still feels great.

Below, we’ll highlight a few of the biggest updates, but you can find detailed release notes in the CHANGELOG.md file at WordPress.org.

New Features

Mini-Cart in the Nav
We added an option to the onboarding screen to add the mini-cart to the nav. That way it will ready to go when you finish the onboarding, without additional config needed.

Support Videos
We’ve added some support videos to the onboarding screen to make it easier than ever to get started. The videos were produced by WP101, a well known WordPress training organization, and they walk a new user through the entire setup process.

Fixed

  • Handled an inconsistency in Channels and Catalog API responses to ensure that deleted products are removed from WordPress.
  • Removed erroneous override of product shortcode/block sorting when a sorting argument is explicitly given.
  • Updated BigCommerce API client to version 2.0.3 to handle product option sort order.

Deprecated

  • Product gallery template overrides based off of the short-lived 3.9.0 template should continue to function, but should be updated for compatibility with future versions. Templates depending on the YouTube API are deprecated.

Conclusion

That’s all for now! Follow CHANGELOG.md for our complete list of updates and we’ll see you here in a few weeks for the latest batch of new features!
