WordPress 4.7.4 Fixes 47 Issues

WordPress 4.7.4 is available and is a maintenance release that fixes 47 issues reported against 4.7. This update includes a visual editor compatibility fix for an upcoming version of Chrome.

Uploading video and audio files no longer result in broken thumbnails and the REST API received a few enhancements related to data handling. WordPress 4.7.4 also restores the ability to Shift-click a range of checkboxes.

Auto updates are rolling out but if you’d like to update immediately, browse to Dashboard > Updates and click the update button.

    4.7.4 seems to have broken CFORMS 2. I tried Contact 7 too and that appears to be broken as well.

    Cforms error message:
    Error occurred while sending the message:
    Could not instantiate wp_mail function.
