WordPress 3.4.1 and Jetpack 1.5 coming next week

This is just a quick note that we will be deploying WordPress 3.4.1 and Jetpack 1.5 early next week. We took a month to test that everything still worked and to give the plugin authors time to release compatibility updates.

A few of the new features in version 3.4.x include a theme customizer with live theme previews, flexible heights for header images, fancy Twitter embeds just by pasting the tweet URL, and basic HTML support in image captions (credit links, italics).

Jetpack 1.5 includes a new “Carousel” view for image galleries and the Jetpack Comments from version 1.4, which I will explain in a post next week.

I also promise an entire week of posts to highlight some of the new features that we have added to the blogs.princeton.edu network over the past couple of months.
