Maintenance Release for the Week of 6 May 2018

Welcome to maintenance release number 7 of 2018! If this is your first time getting an update from us, maintenance releases are smaller updates between major releases, and are mostly comprised of bug fixes, tweaks, and small (but meaningful!) improvements. We always recommend using a staging site to test these changes before updating on a live site.

To see all of the changes included in this maintenance release, check out the changelogs for all updated plugins below:
