We’re excited to announce that, in just a few short weeks, over 100k people have downloaded Jetpack. We wanted to both give thanks and share thoughts on future releases.
First, kudos to everyone who downloaded our unique plugin and spread the word. Also double bonus thanks to those who reported issues on the first releases to Jetpack Support – given the many web hosting providers in the world, and the complexity of how authentication works, it’s impossible to cover them all without your help.
If you haven’t yet, please install the latest release (1.1.2), which should appear as an upgrade in your dashboard if you have a previous version. Then please rate Jetpack on the main plugin site, and score us for compatability on the version of WordPress you are using.
The future: the Jetpack mission is to continually bring features currently only available on WordPress.com to the rest of the WordPress community. Beyond the recent bug fix releases, we’re investigating WordPress.com’s most popular features and how to engineer them to work inside Jetpack. I can’t say more, but it’s fair to say version 1.2 is likely to contain something impressive – something no ordinary plugin can currently do.
Meanwhile, if you could have your wish, what WordPress.com feature would you want to see in Jetpack 1.2? Leave us a comment.
