Hey folks, after the excitement of the 2.2.0 release yesterday we were quickly made aware of a couple of bugs that made it through the beta test and have consequently released two small fix releases to address these issues. Thanks to everyone who brought these issues to our attention and our apologies for any disruption caused.

  • 2.2.1 fixes a fatal error folks were experiencing when running older versions of PHP.
  • 2.2.2 fixes issues folks were experiencing with our Starter Content implementation. Essentially some people were seeing the effects on that feature (widget and page template assignment) in existing sites which of course should not happen.

If you spot any other problems please do not hesitate to open an issue on github (with full details). We’ll investigate and release another fix if required.

I’d also like to remind anyone who hasn’t pushed the update button yet that 2.2 is a major release. To be 100% safe, we recommend that you always test major releases (whether it’s Storefront, WooCommerce, or any of our other products) in a non-production environment first. Or even better – participate on our pre-release beta tests.
