Jetpack 6.8.1: General Maintenance and Security Update

Jetpack 6.8.1 is now available for download. This is a general maintenance release that also addresses a security issue we found during an internal audit of the Contact Form block we introduced in the last release.

Contact Form Block security update

Keeping your sites safe is always at the top of our minds, and this update improves the security of the Contact Form block. We highly recommend that if you have used that new block on your site, you update to Jetpack 6.8.1 as soon as possible.

WooCommerce compatibility changes

Do you use WooCommerce on your site? You’ll be happy to hear that this release includes 2 fixes for you:

  • We fixed an issue that caused Fatal Errors on sites using WooCommerce and that did not use the Publicize feature.
  • We fixed a problem with folks wanting to interact and moderate product reviews via third-party applications like the mobile apps.

Update to 6.8.1 today

As always, the full changelog has more details on this update. If you’re ready to bring the latest version of Jetpack to your site, install Jetpack or update your existing installation right now.
