Jetpack 9.4: Improvements for You

This month, Jetpack focused on enhancing some of your favorite blocks, buttons, and widgets.

  • The Podcast Player Block has skip back and forward buttons, and supports pages with multiple podcasts and RSS feed links. 
  • You can now show off your Patreon profile through the Social Icons widget.
  • Jetpack’s Instant Search feature is now compatible with older browsers like IE11.
  • We fixed some Video block display issues for videos hosted by Jetpack.

This release also includes many other bug fixes and improvements — check the changelog for more details. To use the latest version of Jetpack on your site, update your existing installation or install Jetpack.

Jetpack is more than the sum of its code — it is the collective work of an amazing group of designers, product experts, Happiness Engineers, and code wranglers at Automattic. Does distributed work sound interesting to you? Check out our CEO Matt Mullenweg’s Distributed podcast.

Distributed by Default: Matt Mullenweg on The Knowledge Project

Matt Mullenweg joins Shane Parrish on The Knowledge Project podcast to talk about companies that are distributed from the beginning, and some of the benefits that means for its people. "Part of our model of distributed work also provides a fair amount of autonomy in how people get their work done," Matt said. "I like that it creates a lot more objectivity and focus around what the actual work is."More Subscribe to Distributed at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RSS, or wherever you like to listen.
