Our sincerest apologies, first and foremost – for breaking your sites. Thousands of you download our latest release the day it comes out and we recognize the amount of trust you place in us to deliver a product that keeps on growing and getting better with every passing release. Our last several releases have been quite uneventful, which is a great thing. But this latest release had such a significant amount of changes in it (all for better, more streamlined code to serve you well into the future) that our extensive testing process simply missed a few issues. Here are the issues we have fixed in the latest release, WPeC 22.214.171.124
* Fix: Some users had theme compatibilities and other configurations that caused “Add to Cart” to no longer function as expected.
* Fix: Customer uploads for products broke with JS overhaul
* Fix: Product image links broke.
While I’m incredibly disappointed that I shipped code that had quite severe bugs – which slipped through the QA cracks – I’m incredibly proud of our users and community for pulling together with great bug reports and other developers (Tom Ransom, specifically) for providing helpful patches for some of the bugs. Because of them (and because of you, and to be honest, a whole lot of coffee for me) – we were able to ship a hotfix within 13 hours of the previous release. That’s pretty cool.
Of course, even with this release – we highly recommend testing on a staging site first. Use BackupBuddy, use VaultPress, use WPEngine – use something that allows you to backup your site. After you do that, go download WPeC and enjoy! It’s now the best version ever and we’re excited for the next release.
Thanks again for being the best user base and community out there. As always, please report any bugs you find in the comments, on GitHub, or in the WordPress.org forums
