  1. so, no security updates on this one?


    1. seems odd, since older versions got a minor update as well, which I thought was due to security.


  2. 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.
