So, what’s new here? We will give some main points about the new features of this latest release.

WooCommerce Blocks

In this version, WooCommerce 3.9 adds a new “All Products” block that mimics the WooCommerce core shop page but allows easy customization — and it’s powered by JavaScript and the REST API, so customers stay on the same page while browsing your catalogue.

In addition, the user now can still customize the elements of this page using inner blocks, and use it in conjunction with other new blocks to filter products.
