Jetpack 1.8.2 Released

For those of you experiencing issues with Jetpack Subscriptions, Jetpack 1.8.2 should fix the problem.

Thanks again for the bug reports.  The main bugs we fixed are:

  • A bug that caused Subscriptions not to be sent for content written by some authors.
  • Some broken styling that made P2 (and other themes) ugly.
  • A broken translation for Lithuanian.

See the official Jetpack Changelog for more details.

As usual, you should see the update available in your WordPress dashboard shortly.  If you can’t see it yet and are chomping at the bit, you can download the latest version of Jetpack here at jetpack.me as well.

Remember to contact support or post in the support forum if you need help.

Jetpack 1.3 Released: Contact Forms

Jetpack 1.3 is here and adds a new feature: Contact Forms. If you’ve used WordPress.com’s Contact Forms or Grunion Contact Form, Jetpack’s new feature should look familiar.

To create a contact form, click the contact form icon above the post editor.

A popup will appear allowing you to add, edit, and reorder the fields you want in the contact form.

You can also customize the email address to which the contact form sends. Check out the gallery below for more details.

In the end, you’ll have an Akismet anti-spam protected[1] contact form on whatever WordPress post or page you want.

In addition to receiving an email for each contact form response, all responses will be listed in the Feedbacks section of your WordPress Admin.

Bug Fixes

We’ve also fixed a couple small bugs. This release:

  • Improves YouTube embed handling and improves support for youtu.be URLs and
  • Correctly loads Sharing admin styles on all server/WordPress configurations.

You should see the update available in your WordPress dashboard shortly. Alternatively, you can always download the latest version of Jetpack here at jetpack.me as well.

Remember to contact support if you need help.

On the Horizon

In no particular order, here are a few of the things we’re adding or improving in Jetpack:

  • The commenting features currently available on WordPress.com,
  • Increased customizability of the Subscription feature’s emails, and
  • A better Jetpack management interface.

While we’re excited to get all these updates, and more, out to your sites, we don’t have any estimates on when any of these will be included in Jetpack.

1: Assuming you have the Akismet plugin installed. You do, right?

Jetpack 1.2.2 Released

Version 1.2.2 fixes a few small bugs that affected a small percentage of sites.

  • The expected modules get reactivated correctly during unusual upgrade paths. I’m looking at you, Sharing Module.
  • Theme compatibility (in particular the Koi theme) has been improved for subscriptions.
  • A reference to an unused CSS background image has been removed.
  • Subscription requests are no longer sent during spam comment submissions. Who wants spammers subscribing to your site anyway?

As always, if you need help, please contact support.

Thanks for the Bug Reports: Jetpack 1.2.1 Released

Thanks to your help tracking down bugs in Jetpack 1.2, we’ve been able to quickly ship a new release that fixes most of the problems you reported.

Bugs fixed in version 1.2.1:

  • Missing/Inaccessible Sites Stats page: We made the stats pages faster in Jetpack 1.2. In Jetpack 1.2.1, we actually made them visible.
  • Scary looking errors during upgrade: There were some nasty looking, but ultimately harmless, errors during upgrade for some people.
  • The “menu bubble” for new features shows the wrong number: For some types of upgrades, the bubble’s count was incorrect.
  • The presence of VaultPress is not detected accurately: Our colleagues at VaultPress fixed this one for us.
  • Bad link to Jetpack FAQ: Lastly, a tiny update that only the eagle-eyed spotted.

You should see the update available in your WordPress dashboard shortly. As always, you can download the latest version of Jetpack here at jetpack.me as well.
