WordPress for iOS

Last week we were all working on the 4.0 update, and officially have called “code freeze” as of this past Saturday. There are still a small number of bug fixes (five-ish) that we’re going to get in early this week. Officially we’re on QA/testing duty until the 13th. That’s when we’re planning on submitting the app to Apple for review. This week will be testing and bug fixes for 4.0.

WordPress for Android

Last week we released two releases. 2.6.2 had a good number of tweaks and fixes in it. 2.6.3 fixed an issue with connecting over SSLSSL Secure Socket Layer - Encryption from the server to the browser and back. Prevents prying eyes from seeing what you are sending between your browser and the server.. This week work is continuing on 2.7, which is a blend of niceties, nothing totally new.
