WooCommerce has released 3.6, its latest update that will see faster online stores.
The WordPress eCommerce platform, used by around 3 million websites, has announced a series of performance improvements for its users.
Alongside the new product blocks available in WooCommerce 3.6, we made a series of performance improvements in the front and back end to speed up performance.
The latest batch of updates includes a 62% improvement in load time when filtering and ordering products.
We focused efforts on making a range of performance improvements that reduce loading times for the store and individual product pages, which in turn provide a better browsing experience for customers.
The latest update will see several optimisations on the store admin side, such as providing a better bulk-editing experience.
A new method of handling versioned transients has been introduced to speed up the process of bulk-editing or creating multiple products.
