WordPress 4.9.6

No new issues, that aren’t already known in some way, have been noticed. We also see that with the exception of confusion about the comment checkbox not always being present, users aren’t having many issues with the new privacy tools.

Checking in with international liaisons

The Italian, Serbian, Swedish, Brazilian, RussianGerman and Spanish representatives let us know that things are looking good in the wider world!

Open floor

The next batch of volunteer badges will be assigned when the ones responsible for it return from their break, until then just make sure to keep the volunteer spreadsheet up to date. (Are you an international representative and don’t know about it, please send a Direct Message to @clorith and he will get you sorted). Image embeds are still only restricted to embeds from the CloudUp service, we will likely re-introduce support for imgur at some point as well.     Read the meeting transcript in the Slack archives.
