WooCommerce turns 1.1.1

The WooLabs team have leap-frogged 1.0.3 (announced a fortnight ago) and gone straight to 1.1 and now 1.1.1 in the span of a few weeks; expect regular minor Plugin updates for WooCommerce with a combination of fixes and added features till the Plugin’s roadmap is released to the community.

Noteworthy new features:

  • Allow users to add thumbnails for product categories that can be reserved for brand logos, or generic product images.
  • Optional product dimension fields can be filled in to provide further product information.
  • Drag and drop term ordering so that variation options can be sorted.
  • Filters for tax rates, and a hook for payment complete order status.
