Jetpack 7.8 ships several under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes that make Jetpack’s features work even better for you and your website. Jetpack is more than the sum of its code, though — it is the collective work of an amazing group of designers, product experts, Happiness Engineers, and code wranglers at Automattic.
During this release cycle, we improved Jetpack while also spending a week in person at Automattic’s Grand Meetup. We’re a fully distributed company — everyone works wherever in the world is best for them — but during this week, we gather in one place to discuss our products and the larger open source and open web environment, and to be inspired by each other and build deeper connections across teams and divisions. We’ve become very good at working together virtually for most of the year, but still find the in-person experience of the Grand Meetup incredibly powerful.
