Jetpack 4.7: The Answer is Always 42

Welcome to Jetpack 4.7, available now for upgrade or installation.

After a few releases chock-full of new features (like Google Analytics and Ads) we decided to focus an entire release cycle on some cleanup, enhancements, and bug fixes. An early Spring-cleaning if you will, getting us ready for some even more exciting feature announcements later in the year.

Jetpack 4.3 and 4.3.1: A faster, simpler user interface, powered by React

This week we shipped Jetpack 4.3 (and 4.3.1) which includes a total visual redesign of the Jetpack user interface and a front-end built entirely in React—the same JavaScript library which powers WordPress.com and which enables us to provide you with a faster and more modern user experience.

This version has been a year in the making and is based on feedback from more than 8,000 active Jetpack users around the globe so we can’t wait for you to try it out and let us know what you think. Here are the highlights:

Jetpack 4.2.2: Facebook Sharing Counts and Bug Fixes

Jetpack 4.2.2 addresses an update to Facebook sharing counts and a few bug fixes.

Jetpack Sharing Icon

Facebook Sharing Counts

If you use the Jetpack Sharing Buttons, you may have noticed yesterday that any existing sharing counts for Facebook disappeared! This was due to Facebook turning off a feature in their API that we used to grab and display Facebook sharing counts. There’s a great post on WordPress.org that goes into more detail into the problem.

Since it was only a matter of updating the API that we use to pull the sharing count data from Facebook, we wanted to get this out to you as soon as possible!

Other Bug Fixes

  • Mobile Theme: fixed an issue with the Minileven mobile theme which was preventing it from loading properly.
  • Theme Compatibility: fixed an issue which caused PHP notices to get logged for users of the Twenty Fourteen theme.
  • General: added some improvements to Sync performance.

If you want to see the full list of what was updated in this release, you can check out the changelog.

Big thanks to those who contributed to this release:

Andrew Duthie, Daniel Walmsley, Elio Rivero, George Stephanis, Jeremy Herve, Marin Atanasov, Rich Collier, and Sam Hotchkiss.

Jetpack 3.9.5 and 3.9.6: Maintenance Releases

WordPress 4.5 will be released in a few weeks, and we’ve made updates to Jetpack to account for the significant changes that will be introduced in this new version of WordPress.

These updates have involved making sure that certain Jetpack features work properly in the Customizer view, namely adding support for selective refresh. Big thanks to @westonruter for contributing the code!

Other enhancements and bug fixes:

miguel

  • Contact Form: no longer calling the datepicker method if it’s not available.
  • Single Sign On: settings checkboxes now honor filters and constants that restrict certain sign-in modes.
  • Shortcodes: fixed a problem with Gist fetching.
  • Shortcodes: fixed invalid HTML5 markup in YouTube embed code.
  • Shortcodes: made Vimeo links work properly in case of multiple mixed uses in one post.

Jetpack 3.9.6 was also released today to fix an issue with some comments incorrectly rendering video embeds. Our apologies! Consider it an early April Fools’ Day joke…

Jetpack 3.9.3 and 3.9.4: Maintenance and Compatibility Releases

Jetpack 3.9.4 is now available for download. We’ve fixed a number of bugs and added several enhancements, including compatibility with the new Custom Logo feature coming to WordPress 4.5.  We recommend that you update your sites to the latest version as soon as possible.

Jetpack – Supercharge your WordPress

Jetpack 3.9.3

Custom Logo

Custom Logos are a new feature coming to WordPress 4.5, allowing theme authors to designate a location for site administrators to add a logo. Originally, this was a Jetpack feature and now Jetpack will defer to the WordPress 4.5 implementation as needed.

Enhancements

When using our Carousel and Photon features, full-sized images in the Carousel will now link to the Photon version of the image to save you bandwidth.

We’ve improved the performance of Jetpack with internal enhancements to Comments, Infinite Scroll, Markdown, Publicize, Sitemaps, and the Subscription widget.

We’ve made Jetpack more flexible by improving filters: Infinite Scroll’s infinite_scroll_settings filter will be applied later to avoid being missed in some cases and added a number of hooks to our Top Posts Widget.

Houzz.com is a great website to help you find design ideas, home improvement professionals, and more. Now, you can easily share what you find on your site either by pasting a link to a Houzz.com page on a line by itself in your posts.

Jetpack – Supercharge your WordPress

Security updates

  • Beautiful Math: there was a potential XSS vulnerability when parsing LaTeX markup within HTML elements. The issue was discovered and fixed by our security team.
  • Contact Form: private site credentials could be saved in plain text in WordPress’ postmeta table when said credentials were set to be stored in Environment variables. The issue was discovered by Oliver Liu.

Other minor fixes

This release also includes other bug fixes:

  • Nova Menus: fixed notices as well as issues when adding menu items in bulk.
  • Publicize: Authors can now access their Publicize settings again.
  • Publicize: fixed problems for Australian and Canadian English sites using Publicize to send their posts to Facebook.
  • Embeds: it is now possible to embed Instagram posts using a www in the URL.
  • Widget Visibility: fixed an issue appearing when a page title matched an existing page ID.
  • And many more updates, listed in the changelog.

Enhancements

We added 2 new oEmbed providers, Codepen and Sketchfab. Just paste a URL in your post editor, and enjoy! Here’s a Codepen example:

We also added new filters to allow you to customize the Contact Info widget, define custom patterns to be ignored by Jetpack Markdown, or change the heading of the Related Posts.

Finally, we created a [jetpack_top_posts_widget] shortcode to allow you to display the Top Posts & Pages Widget anywhere on your site.

Staging Mode

Do you use a backup / cloning plugin to clone your production site to a staging environment? Starting with Jetpack 3.9.2, you can use a constant or a filter to flag a site as “Staging site”, thus avoid conflicts and synchronization issues with Jetpack.
