WordPress 4.9.6 Briefing

Typically WordPress maintenance releases include bug fixes and security patches only — not new features. But, WordPress 4.9.6 is not your typical maintenance release.

In this briefing, I explain why this maintenance release includes new features and why it wasn’t numbered 5.0.  I also take you on a quick tour of the new GDPR features and explain how this update relates to the EU’s new privacy regulations.

  1. Hi Kirk,

    Finally viewed this video about 4.9.6 (now that we’re already on 5.9.8)! Great information…very helpful to know. We’ve had a privacy policy always, but I’ll now update it using the template you directed us to. Also now know about the user privacy additions which I had not noticed until seeing them in your video.

    Thanks for keeping us current, despite how rapidly everything keeps changing!

    Linda
