WordPress updated to 4.9.2

This morning we updated WordPress to 4.9.2 which is a security and maintenance release. Bug fixes of note:

  • Fixed a XSS vulnerability that was discovered in the Flash fallback files in MediaElement
  • JavaScript errors that prevented saving posts in Firefox have been fixed.
  • The previous taxonomy-agnostic behavior of get_category_link() and category_description() was restored.
  • Switching themes will now attempt to restore previous widget assignments, even when there are no sidebars to map.

WordPress updated to 4.9

This morning we updated WordPress to 4.9. Highlights include “…an improved Customizer workflow with design drafts, locking, scheduling, and preview links. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got a great new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.”
