Shout out today to the very remarkable Heather Burns and all those involved in WordPress 4.9.6 which landed today. It’s the one with the privacy stuff…

If you run WordPress you should be notified of the available update any time now.

Things to jump out straight away – the ease at which a Privacy Policy can be added. I know, it doesn’t sound like much, adding pages is a fundamental of WordPress really but the fact you can instruct WP to create a new page and that adds in the headings and starter content for you to consider is excellent.

The data export and data erase tools come in to play too, which is nice. Oh, and WP have added some PHP polyfills to core.

All in all – a very handy update.
