Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2017-11-10

After a few weeks of many updates, things are quieting down a bit. You can tell because this newsletter has less on the news and updates sections and more in the how to. People are figuring out how to make the new updates work and are sharing their findings.

Well, not entirely without updates. iOS 11.1.1 dropped, which fixes a weird but annoying auto-correct bug.

As always, many thanks to all those who document and share.

Especially Rich Trouton, whose weblog “DerFlounder” – which is regularly featured in this newsletter – celebrates its eleventh year!

Congratulations, Rich! You are truly an inspiration to us all. Thank you!
