Glow Blogs Update March 2016

There will be a new release on the Glow Blogs Service on Monday 07th March 2016 between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
We expect that the service will be unavailable for only a few minutes but should be considered at risk for the whole period.

The main focus of the release is upgrade to WordPress version 4.3.3 and a new Translation plugin along with some minor bug fixes.

Addition: Translation Widget
This can be added to your blog from the widget page.

Fix: Video files .mov and mp4 files now playing properly on browsers and devices
These files did not play on iOS devices and gave poorer performance in some browsers.
This is now fixed. It also improves MP3 audio playback.

Remember that playback of media files depends on the media file, the browser & operating system.

Change: the featured Jetpack modules, this now makes more sense, showing useful modules on the main Jetpack page.

Fix: Attachment Search plugin
This plugin broke the search across pages on a site, this is now fixed.

The Attachment Search plugin is useful if you are providing a lot of file resources. It includes information from file uploads including the file names and descriptions in search results.

Please get in touch with any questions or concerns.
