I’ve just released version of the CUNY Academic Commons. This is a stopgap bugfix release until we can release the (rather large and overdue) Commons 1.2.5. Commons highlights:

  • Modified the way that the Featured Content widget on the home page selects an avatar for featured Blogs and Blog Posts
  • Removed the WordPress Hit Counter plugin, which was causing performance issues with some sites.
  • Updated the TimThumb script where necessary

Full release details are available at the milestone.
