What’s new in 8.4.0?
WC Blocks feature – Product Collection: Add support for filtering products by featured status
These changes allow merchants to easily display only featured products in their product collections, enhancing flexibility.
Manage your subscriptions for Woo extensions from your store
Want to manage all your licences for Woo.com themes and extensions? WooCommerce 8.4 makes it easy. Go to
WooCommerce > Extensions and click on the
My subscriptions tab. You’ll see all your subscriptions to Woo.com products. Quickly install extensions on your store, renew expired subscriptions, view documentation and more!

There is also a new modal for adding and editing Shipping classes to match methods.
Virtual & Downloadable product support in the new product creation experience
The new product creation experience enabled under Settings > Advanced > Features, now has support for creating Virtual & Downloadable products.
A Downloads field is available in the General tab, allowing you to upload files or insert by URL:
For virtual products, a checkbox has been added in the Shipping tab to remove the need for shipping:
