Multiple updates – WooCommerce 2.3 and more

Following the recent release of WooCommerce 2.3, we reviewed all our WooCommerce products to make sure that they will keep working with this new version. The tests highlighted a couple of issues, mostly due to unexpected changes in WooCommerce core, so we addressed them and prepared updates for the affected products.

All our updates are designed to be fully backward compatible (i.e. they should not break anything), unless otherwise specified. However, due to the quirks of installing new WooCommerce versions, we always recommend to install them on a separate staging site first. This will allow you to verify that all the functions you need keep working correctly, before modifying your production site, and remove the risk of a downtime.

Updated plugins – Details

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce – Version

  • Added logic to work around the removal of woocommerce_available_shipping_methods filter.
  • Disabled override of Google Analytics integration in WooCommerce 2.1 and later. The Google Analytics plugin required by those versions already passes the correct currency information.

Shipping Pricing Integration for WooCommerce – Version

  • Fixed bug in logic used to determine if a shipping method is enabled. The bug occurred with specific configurations and caused some shipping methods to be incorrectly considered enabled or disabled.
  • Fixed notice that appeared when saving the settings for a shipping method.

EU VAT Assistant for WooCommerce – Version

  • Added support for another URL format in the HRMC Exchange Rates Provider. The new URL format was unexpectedly introduced by HMRC in February 2015, and it doesn’t match the structure of any of the previous one (perhaps it was a mistake). The update is backward compatible, and will support all URL formats used so far as well as the new one.
  • Fixed issue with self certification box at checkout. The issue was caused by a breaking change in WooCommerce 2.3, which now renders checkbox fields in a different way.

Mijireh Multi-Currency Gateway for WooCommerce – Version

  • Fixed issue introduced by WooCommerce Mijireh Checkout 1.0.2. The new WooCommerce Mijireh Checkout plugin fires events in a different order and caused the extension logic of the Mijireh Multi-Currency plugin to fail.

WooCommerce Blacklister – Version

  • Fixed error caused by the unexpected removal of a WooCommerce::add_error() method from WooCommerce core libraries.

First Data/Authipay Gateway for WooCommerce – Version

  • Fixed error caused by the unexpected removal of a WooCommerce::logger() method from WooCommerce core libraries.

Skrill/Moneybookers Gateway for WooCommerce – Version

  • Fixed error caused by the unexpected removal of a WooCommerce::logger() method from WooCommerce core libraries.
