  • Fixed a bug that caused author archives to display zero posts
  • Fixed a bug that caused non-public newsletters to appear in search results

  • Integrated Super Cool Ad Inserter plugin settings into the Newspack Advertising dashboard, so that all Newspack ad-related settings can be managed from this interface
