WordPress 4.8.1 was released today and contains 29 maintenance fixes and enhancements. The biggest feature most people will notice is the fixes to the Rich Text Widget (visual editor) and the introduction to a pure HTML Widget that will handle HTML in the widget and users won't have to worry about the Visual/Text tab switching back-and-forth and losing any custom formatting.

Several other fixes of note:

  • Fixed the Empty Spam and Empty Trash buttons that were missing on mobile screens.
  • Fixed the missing panel footer border.
  • Increased the TinyMCE panel z-index to fix possible conflicts.
  • Updated VideoPress oEmbed URL
  • Fixed the RTL content capabilities in the TinyMCE editor widget

As always, make sure you have a quality backup and start updating your sites. If you find anything strange let me know.
