In this episode, John James Jacoby and I start off the show by sending Jesse Peterson our thoughts, prayers, and positive energy. Peterson is a longtime member of the WordPress community, founder of Genesis The.me, and is battling Cystic Fibrosis. He received the call last Friday to receive a double-lung transplant but the surgery was cancelled after doctors determined the lungs were bad after removing them from the patient. We’re hoping he gets the call again soon!
We give insight into what’s new in WordPress 4.8, provide tips for filing a good bug report, and tell you what to expect in the next major version of WP Super Cache. We discuss Imagely acquiring TeslaThemes and near the end of the show, we talk about the WordPress Community Summit at WordCamp Europe.
