With the quickly approaching compliance date for the new GDPR regulations, as well as a spate of recent bugs in beta 1, the latest WordPress release, 4.9.6 Release Candidate 1 is right on time and available for download now.
While the majority of fixes revolve around GDPR/Privacy fixes, several general and code fixes have also been included. A full list of release fixes can be viewed on the WordPress Trac site. Due to the number of privacy tools and enhancements, the release needs more testing, and testers are encouraged to report them on the WordPress Alpha/Beta/RC forums.
At Wave Motion Digital, we are working with our clients to ensure a smooth transition to the coming GDPR regulations. If you would like assistance or consultation to ensure your site is ready and fully compliant, please call or email us and we can develop and implement a GDPR strategy customized for your organization.
