In this month’s release, we’ve improved the user experience around connecting your site to WordPress.com. It’s now faster and more reliable, helping you to diagnose and fix issues as quickly as possible.
Additionally, some new tools will now allow you to transfer a connection to a different administrator on your site.

As always, this release includes many other bug fixes and improvements. You can check the changelog for more details. To use the latest version of Jetpack on your site, update your existing installation or install Jetpack.
