Why 4.6.1? because the 4.6 line of versions is meant to be fully compatible with WordPress version 4.6. There is still some time until it will be released but from our point of view we have completed all the features we intended to have and no new features will be added until WordPress will be in its 4.7 cycle.
So what is new in this release?
- We have added the ability to insert the widget into content by using a shortcode.
- We have deprecated the functionality that allows HTML in the automatically generated excerpt.
- We have added a filter to let you customize the excerpt (yes, same article as above)
- Most of our time was spent on making our code better, improve its internal documentation and write unit test to easily detect bugs
What is next? For the 4.6.x line, in addition to fixing bugs we might refine the functionality of the shortcode based on your feedback. For the 4.7.x line we are currently thinking of introducing an offset parameter for the query. (Start your list not with the recent post, in addition remove n-th post from the recent.) Set default thumbnail image and separate filtering of parent categories from their children.
