This week, we got the release of WordPress 4.9.6. True to the numbers, it’s technically a minor privacy and maintenance release. But because it adds some big new features to tackle the GDPR, some people think it straddles the line between minor and major release.

CodeinWP also published the results of their 2018 hosting survey. And we rounded up some WordPress businesses that are still publishing income reports.

We also got a Lifetime Special from WP Compress. WP Compress Auto-Optimizes your new images daily so that you don’t get penalized for slow load times. With their Lifetime Membership, you’ll never need to worry about slow loading images dragging down your site again.

Let’s get to all of this week’s news…
