Jetpack 4.8.2 fixes issues appearing in Jetpack’s new Settings area, on sites running older versions of PHP.
This release is recommended for all users.
After releasing Jetpack 4.8 earlier this week, we immediately noticed some issues that we had missed during Beta testing. We released Jetpack 4.8.1 on Thursday to address those issues, but unfortunately noticed a few more issues since then:
- On sites running PHP versions below 5.4, it was sometimes impossible to activate or deactivate some of the features via the new Settings screen.
- We took the opportunity to remove another function incompatible with PHP versions below 5.4 in Jetpack.
- In some cases, site owners would only see a blank page when visiting the new Jetpack Dashboard.
All of these problems have now been fixed. You can update to Jetpack 4.8.2 by going to Dashboard > Updates in your dashboard. Another alternative is to update manually by following the instructions in our last post.
