WooCommerce 3.4.5 security/fix release notes.
WooCommerce 3.4.5 is now available. This is a security releasefor all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites as soon as possible.
Versions 3.4.4 and earlier are affected by an issue where a function that updates attributes could lead to object injection. This is related to the WordPress 4.8.3 security release.
This issue can only be exploited by users who can edit attributes and should not be possible to exploit through the WordPress administrative screens, but we still recommend all users running WooCommerce 3.x upgrade to 3.4.5 to mitigate this issue. Thanks to slavco for responsibly disclosing the vulnerability to us.
As well as this security fix,
23 commits made it into this release. The full changelog is below.

Taxes Not Displaying
I have tried everything and read every piece of literature I can find, but I can not solve the problem. My taxes will not display no matter what I do. The taxes will display using “Enable Automatic Taxes,” with WooCommerce Services activated, however they will only display for the local area (I need taxes in every state).
As soon as I turn off automatic taxes nothing shows up.
Thanks for the help.

Is there a particular reason you need to charge sales tax in multiple states?
You only need to charge sales tax in states where you have a physical presence. This is why WooCommerce services only calculates taxes for your home state. This article
goes into a bit more information 🙂
Yes, my company is required to pay taxes in every state.
So is there no way to change this?
What about paid WooCommerce?

You can import the tax rates into WooCommerce using a CSV. Head to WooCommerce–> Settings–> Tax, and disable the automated rates. Head then to Standard Rates , then Import CSV . Using a CSV file like this one will allow you to add those rates to your store. US tax rates often change, so double check that CSV for accuracy.

WordPress 5.0: What the new Block Editor means for WooCommerce
Written by Claudiu Lodromanean on November 30, 2018 Blog.
WordPress 5.0 introduces the new block editor to WordPress. Through a complete revamping and modernization of the WordPress content-editing experience, content will be created as a series of blocks in a brand new interface.
For WooCommerce store owners and developers, it’s the start of an exciting process that will make large parts of the admin interface easier-to-use, and more dynamic – including customization and management of posts and products.
The transition to block-based editing will take place incrementally, but here is what you can look out for:
New Block Editor
One of the strongest reasons to use WooCommerce over other eCommerce platforms is because you also get access to WordPress’ content capabilities. You’re able to write and publish all sorts of promotional content and blog posts for your shop in the same place you manage your products and orders. This is a powerful integration, and it will only be improved by the block editor.
With it, you can create highly-customized landing pages, blog posts, and articles with full control over each individual section, with many different types of sections available.
With thousands of developers in the WordPress plugin ecosystem, it is only a matter of time before all sorts of useful new blocks are available for your content: from blocks for newsletter signups and calls-to-action, to blocks for image galleries and testimonials, to the WooCommerce-specific blocks we’re developing.
WooCommerce’s initial block for the WordPress 5.0 launch is the Products Block. Using this block, you can feature your products in posts and pages. Products can be filtered and sorted by all sorts of criteria, and you can also adjust display features like the number of rows or columns.
It’s a much more powerful, visual, and intuitive way of featuring products in content compared to previous solutions such as shortcodes or toolbar buttons in the classic TinyMCE editor.
The Products Block is currently a feature plugin while we refine and polish the user experience to make it as natural and intuitive to use as possible. Once the experience is dialled-in, we will be merging it into the WooCommerce core plugin, where it will be available to all WooCommerce stores.
We’ve been hard at work getting our Storefront theme ready for WordPress 5.0. The block editor introduces a lot of new blocks and features of which themes can take advantage. Some of these include full-width cover images, parallax images with text overlay, all sorts of different embedded content blocks, and column support for up to six columns.
Storefront 2.4 and highersupports all of the new blocks introduced in WP 5.0, and is available for download now.
Twenty Nineteen Theme
In addition to the new editor, WordPress 5.0 introduces a new default theme: Twenty Nineteen. This theme is designed from the ground up to be super-flexible, taking full advantage of the block editor.
WooCommerce 3.5.2 and highersupports Twenty Nineteen, and you can use this new theme as the base for all sorts of different shops.
Block Editor Phase Two and WooCommerce
Design prototype showing how editing a product might look in the future.
The block editor’s next phase will introduce the concept of templates. The specific implementation of how templates will function is still in the works, but this will enable WooCommerce to modernize and improve the product editing experience even further.
Instead of a bunch of meta boxes scattered about the product admin interface, you could soon be editing products using a visual editor, where you can see and customize in great detail how the product will appear in the shop.
We Look Forward To WordPress 5.0 and Beyond
We’re looking forward to all that WordPress 5.0 will bring to eCommerce on WordPress in the immediate and longer term.
Stay tuned throughout 2019 for more info about phase two, and what it means for WooCommerce.
