Today we’re happy to announce the fifteenth Maintenance Release of 2017. Maintenance Releases are smaller updates between major updates that are mostly comprised of bug fixes, tweaks, and small but meaningful improvements.

Note: WordPress 4.4 is the minimum officially supported version of WordPress for The Events Calendar and Community Events
