Another one of those quick announcement posts, but this one is really important and an interesting step in the right direction for the Open Source WordPress community.
The WooCommerce core team just shipped WooCommerce 3.5.3, which is really a 1 issue patch release, which resolves the not-so-insignificant issue of the Orders list table (in wp admin) going missing on upgrade to last night’s WordPress 5.0.2 release.
