Not really a question, but I will mention it in case it helps someone. I’m running version 1.1.3 of the theme. I noticed my plugins were automatically updating and traced that to auto_update_plugin being set to true in functions.php. That’s a big enough change from version 1 that I would have expected to see it mentioned in the release notes.
I would think some sites would really like having that true, so they don’t have to worry about doing plugin updates, and some sites would really like that to be false, so they can test plugin updates before deploying them.
