  • Offline Support: We wrapped up phase 1 of offline support improvements by implementing offline publishing on both platforms, and we completed the removal of local previews on Android and improved the preview experience on iOS.
  • Infrastructure: We made improvements to the fastlane configure tooling and our UI tests, we shipped new screenshots for the WordPress apps.
