WordPress Designer News, WordPress 4.2.2, Post State Tags, Automattic Buys WooCommerce, Jetpack
WordPress 4.2.2 is now available, this version fixes a critical cross-site scripting vulnerability, which could enable anonymous users to compromise a site, you are strongly advised to update your WordPress blogs immediately.
Post State tags is an interesting new plug-in appearing in the repository that highlights the left border color and background color and re-formats the post status as visual color tags in the WordPress Admin post list view (see screenshot below).
Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, has just acquired WooCommerce. With roughly 7.5 million downloads, it’s easily the most popular e-commerce WordPress plugin.
This one initially passed me by, right at the beginning of the month JetPack has been updated to version 3.5.3, an all important update to fix the Genericons vulnerability. JetPack describes itself as ‘Your WordPress, Streamlined.’
At over 1million active downloads this popular WordPress Plug-in surely deserves attention.
