Great news for Jetpack users! With the release of the new WordPress.com, there are some exciting improvements for Jetpack users, too!
The Jetpack plugin now gives your self-hosted sites access to the new WordPress.com publishing and site-building tools — and the brand new WordPress.com app for Mac, along with a host of features to speed up, secure, and simplify site administration like automatic backups and plugin auto-updating.
Use the desktop app to focus on your content and design with no other browser tabs to distract you, or to keep your sites sidelined but accessible. Build your site anywhere, in whatever way helps you get your best work done: the app is powered by the same technology that runs WordPress.com, creating a seamless experience for publishing and browsing whether you’re in a browser, a mobile app, or the desktop!
(Windows and Linux users, we haven’t forgotten you! Visit the download page and sign up to be notified when your apps are available.)

To make sure you can take full advantage of the multisite management and publishing capabilities via the WordPress.com interface and the new WordPress.com app for Mac, turn on Jetpack Manage to enable site management in your plugin settings.
