Jetpack by WordPress.com 4.1

Jetpack by WordPress.com was updated to version 4.1, from version 4.0.4. Changelog:

  • Carousel no longer loads full-size images in the previous and next previews, increasing the speed and performance of slideshows.
  • We’ve improved Jetpack’s performance by making calls to the database more efficient; essentially, Jetpack is doing less on each page load, making things faster.
  • We’ve improved Photon dev mode, eliminating unnecessary attempts to sync images.
  • A new look: SSO, redesigned and refactored, provides a new and improved experience.
  • Tracking made simple: quickly view the number of unread feedback submissions in your sidebar.
  • Getting support just got easier! Access improved self-help tools in the Jetpack Debug menu.
  • Greater control over Infinite Scroll: pause and resume Infinite Scroll with two new JavaScript methods.
  • Improved Sharing: we’ve swapped image icons for icon fonts and added Telegram and WhatsApp buttons.
  • Untappd shortcode: now you can sip and share your favorite craft brews. Cheers!
  • Recipes, revamped: we’ve added new recipe shortcodes and options to create more detailed recipes.
  • Improved Gallery Widgets now use Photon to resize and serve images.
  • We’re continuing our efforts to harden Jetpack security by implementing the hash_equals() function in an effort to avoid timing attacks when comparing strings.
  • We’ve made it easier to use SSL connections on ports 80 and 443, improving our ability to communicate with an increased number of secure websites.
  • You will now receive a warning for any failed attempts when connecting your website via SSL.
  • Updated the Infinite Scroll settings verbiage, which was a bit confusing.
  • Removed Jetpack Audio Shortcode, which is no longer in use.
  • Redesigned Jetpack banner notices to match core notification styles.
  • Added an icon on a connected Jetpack user’s profile page, next to their name.
  • Added the ability to edit Portfolio custom-post-type options in the Customizer.
  • Added a new filter called jetpack_publicize_capability which allows you to override user role restrictions for Publicize.
  • Improved the connection process between Jetpack and WordPress.com making it easier to start using Manage.
  • Updated the Top Posts Widget so you can use and display posts that are older than 10 days.

  • Updated the naming convention for feedback posts.
  • Updated several JSON API endpoints to match WordPress.com endpoints, added support for custom taxonomies, and enabled trash as a valid status for the post update endpoint.
  • A community member found and fixed a compatibility issue with our Open Graph Meta Tags and Bitly’s older plugin — we now check to make sure we don’t create conflicts.
  • We’ve fixed a rare scenario where an error would occur when other plugins or sites were using the JETPACK__GLOTPRESS_LOCALES_PATH constant.
  • Comment avatars are now retrieved in a manner more consistent with the login avatar, improving consistency and eliminating the possibility of a future bug.
  • We eliminated PHP notices that were appearing when Custom Content Types were defined without labels or sections.
  • PHP memory limits were reached in rare cases when a website had thousands of revisions of their Custom CSS. The issue is fixed — happy editing!
  • jQuery deprecated the size() function — as a result, we’ve stopped using it as well.
  • A PHP notice popped up when plugins were updated from the WordPress.com plugin management interface — these notices will no longer appear.
  • We fixed a bug where Photon wasn’t providing the original size for images that were being used outside of the post content.
  • We eliminated the PHP notices that displayed when posts with slideshows were added to a sitemap.
  • We fixed an error that was showing up in Sitemaps when a website permalink structure used index.php.
  • We eliminated JavaScript errors that displayed when tiled galleries were viewed.
  • We fixed an issue where image dimensions weren’t properly saved when added to a new widget.
