Jetpack 6.5: General Maintenance and Security Update

Jetpack 6.5 is now available for download. This is a general maintenance release that also addresses a security issue reported to us via HackerOne.

Here’s what’s new this month:

Simple Payments security update

Keeping your sites safe is always at the top of our minds, and this update improves the security of the Simple Payments widget. We highly recommend that users of this widget update to Jetpack 6.5 as soon as possible.

Thank you, Simon Scannell of RIPS Technologies, for responsibly disclosing the security vulnerability to us.

Lazy Images network usage improved

With this update, your site visitors will have an even faster experience scrolling through your images once you’ve activated Lazy Images.

Site Verification settings removed from the Tools menu

We removed the settings interface previously found on the Tools menu, but you can still access it by visiting the Jetpack Admin Page settings.

WordAds improvements

You can now add and control custom entries on the ads.txt file with a brand-new setting. Where can you find it? Just head to the Jetpack Admin Page settings under the Traffic tab.

Update to 6.5 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.

Jetpack 6.4: General Maintenance

Jetpack 6.4 is now available for download. This is another general maintenance release.

Here’s the short list of what’s new for this month:

Alignment fixes for Lazy Loading Images

Visitors with Javascript disabled should experience proper alignment of images on your site when using the Lazy Loading Images feature.

Also, if you are using this feature with the WooCommerce plugin, there should no longer be any bugs with images after updating an item’s quantity in the shopping cart.

flat.io shortcode added

We added a shortcode for flat.io embeds. Just paste an embed URL obtained on your flat.io score into the post body to get this working.

Simple Payment Widget updates

We added a warning for admin users when there are Simple Payment products published on pages/posts or as a Widget and the Simple Payment feature is disabled.

Additionally, users of a multi-site installation were experiencing fatal errors coming from the Simple Payment Widget if they deactivated Jetpack while running 6.3. We fixed that in this update.

Update to 6.4 today

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

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this release: Abidh Ahmed, Alex Kozack, Brandon Kraft, Corey McKrill, Daniel Walmsley, Elio Rivero, Enej Bajgoric, Eric Binnion, Fernando Espinosa, Filipe Varela, Garrett Hyder, Igor Zinovyev, Kerry Liu, Marin Atanasov, Michael Cain, Michael D Adams, Michael Turk, Mikael Korpela, Oscar Lopez, Rodrigo Iloro, Rolf Allard van Hagen, Sybre Waaijer, Weston Ruter, and Yaroslav Kukharuk.
