Release notes describe changes, fixes, and additions to the Pacific theme. Use this article to stay in the loop with Pacific’s latest versions. Each version is listed below with the release date, version number, and changes included.
November 25th, 2021 - v5.0.0
- Support for Shopify's automatic international tax-inclusive prices.
- Subscription support has been added.
- We have added support for Shopify's Online Store 2.0 update, including:
- Sections formerly limited to the home page can now be added to the product page and custom pages.
- Product sections now have the ability to add, remove, and move blocks of content around.

When updating to an Online Store 2.0 compatible version, the Theme Updater App is only able to preserve global theme settings (e.g. Colors, Typography). Content such as homepage sections will need to be rebuilt. This is a one-time process that is required to align with new templating standards and maintain theme performance.
