We just released a minor update for WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual, which resolves a number of issues that came up after the major WPML 4.2 release last week.
Problems Updating WPML
Due to changes between WPML versions, some sites can have an error with the installation ZIP file. Long story short, there’s a simple workaround for this problem.
Go to Dashboard->Updates and click on the Check Again button. This flushes out the updates history.
If you received an error about bad ZIP file and your WPML account is valid and your site is registered, this action should resolve the problem.

Download and Update
As always, we recommend doing a backup before updating WordPress, the theme and plugins. This is a limited release which doesn’t add new functionality and doesn’t modify existing functionality. It only fixes a number of problems. We recommend to update your sites and always run the most stable and secure version of WPML and all other plugins.
If you have any questions ideas and suggestions, please add your comments and we will get back to you.
