You’ve been thinking about changing the look of your site for a while now. You found a WordPress theme that you like, but you’re a bit nervous about what will happen to your site after you activate the new theme.

With the WordPress 4.4 Release Candidate now available, we wanted to release our fully-compatible version of Jetpack a little early. So here it is, along with some minor bug fixes and accessibility improvements.
There are some cool things coming in WordPress 4.4, such as responsive images. To take full advantage of this, we made sure that Photon serves responsive images as well.
If you’ve had the pleasure of testing out Twenty Sixteen, we’ve included some compatibility styling to make sure Jetpack features such as Related Posts, Share Buttons, Likes, and Infinite Scroll all look great.
WordPress made some adjustments to the heading levels in 4.4 to improve accessibility. We scrubbed Jetpack to make sure our heading levels are semantic and accessible to screen readers as well.
We went through and optimized the images that we display within the Jetpack Admin, which dropped our image directory from 1.8 MB to 856 KB. Every little bit counts!
Fixed some minor bugs with Carousel, Markdown, Single Sign On, and Subscriptions.
Contributors for this release include Adam Heckler, Alex Kirk, Brandon Kraft, Chris Wiegman, Derek Smart, Eduardo Reveles, Enej Bajgoric, Ian Dunn, Igor Zinovyev, Jake Jackson, Jeff Golenski, Jeremy Herve, Joey Kudish, Konstantin Obenland, Michael Cain. Miguel Lezama, Rocco Tripaldi, Sam Hotchkiss, Scott Grant, and Takashi Irie.
Jetpack 2.3.4 is out! Included are a number of bug fixes and enhancements — from using the freshest Genericon assets to improving many of our translations, it’s the best Jetpack yet.
We’ve also lightened the load by dropping many of the “retina display” versions of WordPress Core assets that core has had come bundled with since 3.5. If you’re still running WordPress 3.4, it may be time to look at upgrading!
