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.

Commons 1.5.18

I’ve just released version 1.5.18 of the CUNY Academic Commons. This maintenance release features a number of important platform updates. WordPress has been updated to the latest release version (3.8.1), which boasts a new Dashboard design. BuddyPress has also been updated to the latest version (1.9.2). This release is a major plugin release; see https://dev.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2014/02/06/major-commons-plugin-updates-scheduled-for-2014-2-21/ for a list of plugins that were updated under this policy.
