After upgrading to 3.8, users can display Google+ badges in a widget that shows your Google+ community, page and profile.
You can modify the badge widget’s layout, width and pick either a dark or light color scheme. Google+ is also now in the Social Media Icons widget, bringing the total of networks available to nine.
In previous updates to Jetpack, the Contact Form checkbox was limited to one item. In Jetpack 3.8, you can now add multiple items.
Beyond that tweak, there is also improved styling in the Contact Form Email Responses. previously, emails didn’t match the order of the field inside the contact form. In 3.8, responses to the form will show up in the order you set.
Other improvements in Jetpack 3.8 include:
- New filters to allow more customization of Jetpack modules
- Improvements to accessibility features
- Improved error messaging in Subscriptions Widgets forms.
