We’ve updated Perch with a number of bug fixes for issues discovered via our support system and some enhancements to the developer API to support better functionality in add-ons.
Please back up your site and database before updating. If updating from a version earlier than 1.6, please run the /perch/update script once you have copied the files.
There’s no need to install immediately. You should update when it’s next convenient to do so. This release contains a number of small bug fixes.
This release fixes the below issues:

Users experiencing these issues should update as soon as possible.
