P4 Auto-update details, build #968

This morning we pushed another auto-update to P4 users on web-hosts capable of handling automatic updates. The auto-update fixes a number of small glitches that affect some users.

The biggest bug we fixed was that for about half of the users that purchased in the week, the green “Edit” links on ProPhoto Gallery and Grid placeholders wasn’t working. That’s fixed now, sorry about that.

If it hasn’t already done so, you ProPhoto blog should auto-update next time you log in. If it doesn’t, you’re probably one of the 5% or so of our users on web-hosts not capable of handling auto-updates. If you’re in that group, don’t worry, there’s no need for you to update to the latest build unless you’re directly experiencing a problem. If there is a critical update you need, we will notify you about it.

For the curious or nerdy out there, here is a fairly exhaustive list of all of the changes since the last auto-update we pushed, build #944:
