After we announced media changes on WordPress.com, some of you asked when these new WordPress.com features would be available for self-hosted WordPress sites.
Well, wait no more! The latest features brought to WordPress.com such as tiled galleries and slideshows are now available for WordPress.org users with self-hosted sites through the Jetpack 2.1 release. You can now show off your images in gorgeous photo mosaics and slideshows that integrate seamlessly with the Carousel module.
In addition to these media features, WordPress.org users who have installed the latest Jetpack release will notice updates to the Photon, Infinite Scroll, Publicize, Sharing, and Contact Form modules, while the Custom CSS editor has also been updated. For a complete list of changes, see the Jetpack changelog.
What is Jetpack?
Jetpack is a free plugin that connects to WordPress.com and allows users with self-hosted WordPress sites to enable the awesome features available to WordPress.com users, like Stats, Comments, Contact Forms, Sharing tools, and more. In the past, WordPress.com features weren’t available on self-hosted WordPress installs.
Jetpack brings the best of WordPress.com to users of self-hosted WordPress sites in one super plugin; it’s quite convenient, as you don’t have to bother with several separate plugin installations.
