WooCommerce 3.0

06 Apr 2017

This release includes significant performance improvements, thanks to the switch from post meta to taxonomies for features like product visibility, featured products, and out of stock products. WooCommerce contributors have also reduced the number of queries required to display related products and upsells.

In the overhauled gallery, which will appear on individual product pages, you’ll find:

Shoppers can now both magnify images from the page, and zoom into them from a lightbox popup. If you have more than one image, the gallery behavior is more intuitive; for example, clicking a thumbnail updates the image you’re already viewing instead of opening a lightbox popup window. Dramatic improvements for mobile gallery views, including touch gestures: swipe to scroll through the gallery, pinch to zoom, and swipe up to close the current image. Zooming into a product image on mobile now displays the image’s true size — previously it would scale to match the (very small) browser window, not an ideal experience!

"We think these improvements create a faster and easier experience for shoppers viewing your product images, especially on mobile devices, and give them the ability to zoom in and see those little details. If you haven’t already, now’s the perfect time to make sure you have multiple product images in place for all of your items!" -Woocommerce.com

Watch for performance improvements, especially in larger stores.

We’re always working to make WooCommerce faster and more efficient, and this update is no different. We’ve packed several significant performance enhancements into 3.0, which you’re most likely to notice if you have a larger store (specifically with several hundred products or many different variations).

Two of the specific improvements we’d like to point out:

We now use taxonomies to determine and display product visibility, featured products, and out of stock products instead of the slower post meta, and We’ve reduced the number of queries for upsells and related products on product and cart pages.
