Compatibility Changes

While we try to deliver releases that are free from breaking changes, it is worth highlighting a potential breaking change within the WooCommerce Admin package, stemming from the removal of a number of settings from the wc_admin namespace within the wc/data store. This may impact some third party code that aims to integrate with WooCommerce Admin.

Two new filters have been added:

woocommerce_quantity_input_min_adminAllows the minimum value for the product quantity selector (within the order editor) to be changed.
woocommerce_quantity_input_step_adminAllows the step value for the product quantity selctor (within the order editor) to be changed.

One filter has been changed:
