Jetpack 3.9.4 is now available for download. We’ve fixed a number of bugs and added several enhancements, including compatibility with the new Custom Logo feature coming to WordPress 4.5. We recommend that you update your sites to the latest version as soon as possible.
Custom Logos are a new feature coming to WordPress 4.5, allowing theme authors to designate a location for site administrators to add a logo. Originally, this was a Jetpack feature and now Jetpack will defer to the WordPress 4.5 implementation as needed.
When using our Carousel and Photon features, full-sized images in the Carousel will now link to the Photon version of the image to save you bandwidth.
We’ve improved the performance of Jetpack with internal enhancements to Comments, Infinite Scroll, Markdown, Publicize, Sitemaps, and the Subscription widget.
We’ve made Jetpack more flexible by improving filters: Infinite Scroll’s
infinite_scroll_settings filter will be applied later to avoid being missed in some cases and added a number of hooks to our Top Posts Widget.
Houzz.com is a great website to help you find design ideas, home improvement professionals, and more. Now, you can easily share what you find on your site either by pasting a link to a Houzz.com page on a line by itself in your posts.
This release also includes other bug fixes:
- Comments: No longer reloading the page when clicking ‘Reply’
- Contact Form: Fixed a formatting problem with e-mails in some clients.
- Shortcodes: Fixed issues with the Vimeo shortcode involving dimensions and warnings.
- And many more updates, listed in the changelog.
