Display “Add review” link when product has no rating

If a product has no ratings, “Add rating” link appears instead of stars. The idea is to help preserve the layout and eventually be a consistent way to link shoppers directly to the rating results for the product.

Apply rate limiting to non-admin users only

If you enable the rate limiting filter for Store API, it will only be applied to non-admin users. You can now edit our Blocks without being restricted by the rate limiting on the admin side!

Cart & Checkout buttons are editable

On the Cart Block, the “Proceed to Checkout” button text is now editable in the editor. On the Checkout block, the “Place Order” button text is also editable. These will default to the original text if left empty
