Thanks for getting in touch with us about WooCommerce Customizer! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the plugin. I’m happy to help out here.
As you can see, Customizer is compatible with the latest version WooCommerce, though I completely understand your concern. As WooCommerce recently moved away from their previous versioning to be more in line with the WordPress version system, WooCommerce 5.8.0 is considered a minor release and fully backward compatible.
We’re currently only updating the tested up to tags for major releases, or if we need to release a plugin fix or new feature, whichever comes first! This is to avoid “empty” releases that only require a tag update so we can focus more on bug fixes and new features for you. I’m not seeing any fixes the developers are working on at the moment, so while I can’t say when this tag would be updated just yet, there shouldn’t be any worries with running it on the latest and greatest WooCommerce and WordPress versions, including the next WordPress update.
Going forward, if you’re concerned about compatibility, I’d recommend trying things out on a staging site first. If your hosting company doesn’t provide a staging site, you can create one with the WP-Staging plugin:
Once you create the staging site and update WooCommerce and WordPress there, you can test things out with our Customizer plugin. If all goes well, you should be good to go to update your live site!
Thanks again for reaching out to confirm though, it’s definitely worth avoiding an update if it’ll break your site! Is there anything else I can help out with today?
Thank you for your response, Erica!
I am very satisfied with the answer.
