Jetpack 2.0 has Landed

November 8th, 2012
WordPress Plugins

Jetpack 2.0 has landed, bringing a new stack of features to self-hosted blogs.

Jetpack 2.0 brings with it a small collection of bug fixes, as well as Publicize to automatically share your site’s posts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Linkedin, and Yahoo!, Post by Email to publish posts on your blog by email, Photon to dynamically serve your images from the global cloud (creating less server load and faster images), and Infinite Scroll to load new posts as users scroll down without a full-page refresh in supported themes.

If you’re already a Jetpack user, these are definitely some powerful additions to an already great free plugin. If you aren’t already a Jetpack user, perhaps it’s time to give it a try.

    Hi James
    Which of the related psots plugins would you recommend as being the best for being able to exclude certain posts? I dont mean to exclude them from the RP internal linking TO the post, but to somehow make sure that related posts are not shown or linked FROM certain posts. Does that make any sense???

    In other words, I dont want related posts or internal linking to be shown or added to certain posts.

    Jetpack does sound very cool.. I shall have to check that out!

    Jetpack makes things so much easier but I still find that sometimes it can get in my way a bit with certain code conflicts especially with my page caching and minifiation plugins. Mind you this was in the previous version of jetpack so I may try the new version with all the bug fixes and see if its improved. As of right now I have been using buffer for my social media stuff and the amazon cloud to serve my images.

    I will am going to try the new version now on a new a site I am working on now. Thanks for letting us know about the update… would have never known if I did see this post.

    I have seen jetpack but as yet I have not installed it, probably because I have most of the tasks handled by other plugins.

    Is Jetpack a resource hog? I am considering using it, especially because of the comment function. I don’t want people having to fill out the fields in order to comment and so I appreciate the social icons that simplify commenting.
