WordPress 4.9.6 Privacy and Maintenance Release

WordPress has released version 4.9.6, which adds support for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a European Union privacy standard which takes effect on May 25th.

The GDPR will require website transparency about collection, use, and sharing of user data. It also will give users more control about how data can be collected and shared.

WordPress 4.9.6 is available for download or update in your WP-Admin dashboard. Please make sure to update when you have a chance.
