Commons 1.6.0.1

I’ve just released version 1.6.0.1 of the CUNY Academic Commons. This is a security update, with updates to WordPress (version 3.8.3) and Jetpack.

Due to a calendar failure (my slip-up – many apologies), the 1.6.1 release scheduled for April 11 was skipped. That’s why this release is minimal, and given the 1.6.0.1 version number. 1.6.1 has been rescheduled for April 21.

For complete details, see the 1.6.0.1 milestone.
