Scheduled
Today, 09-07-2018 starting with 17:00 EEST ( 06:00 PDT/PST ~ https://bit.ly/2KJxjYn ) for 2 hours, we'll be updating Wordpress to the latest version 4.9.7 on all production instances. During this time, the wp-admin can become inaccessible for brief periods of time while the new version is applied. The public sites will not be affected and they will work normally. For any inquiries during this time don't hesitate to contact us at support@presslabs.com.

The new WordPress version is a security and maintenance release for all versions since WordPress 3.7:
- Taxonomy: Improve cache handling for term queries;
- Posts, Post Types: Clear post password cookie when logging out;
- Widgets: Allow basic HTML tags in sidebar descriptions on Widgets admin screen;
- Community Events Dashboard: Always show the nearest WordCamp if one is coming up, even if there are multiple Meetups happening first;
- Privacy: Make sure default privacy policy content does not cause a fatal error when flushing rewrite rules outside of the admin context.
