The new ASA2 update supports the three new countries where the Amazon PA API is now available:

  • Belgium
  • Egypt
  • Saudi Arabia

Compatibility with WordPress 6.1

The release of the new WordPress version 6.1 is imminent. The new ASA2 update has been tested and optimized for smooth operation with the new WordPress version. ASA2 1.16.3 can be used with WordPress 6.1 without any concerns.

Optimizations for PHP 8

Support for PHP 7.4 will expire in November 2022. Therefore, some web hosts are planning to switch off PHP 7 soon and offer PHP 8 only. ASA2 is developed and tested under the current and future PHP version. This update includes several improvements regarding PHP support.

If you notice any issues regarding compatibility with both WordPress and/or PHP versions, you are welcome to create a support ticket.

Bugfixes and improvements

The update also contains some bugfixes and improvements regarding the layout of the included product templates. As always, you can find the details in the changelog.
