WooCommerce released its latest upgrade, version 2.5 – dubbed the “Dashing Dolphin,” in January.
Here’s how the WooThemes product release announcement describes the new features:
This latest version focuses on getting the store itself to run quickly and is aptly named Dashing Dolphin.
We made several changes under the hood that improve the speed of your store.
First, we improved how WooCommerce knows who is on the site and what they have in the cart, known as a session handler. … We’re now storing less temporary data in the database, which speeds up every page load.
Several pages in the backend were improved, such as the tax settings screen. For store owners that collect taxes in a lot of regions, this screen will both save and load much faster.
