For users of the popular Genesis framework by Studiopress be sure to update your installs today to version 2.3.

The update should ensure your site is ready for WordPress 4.6 in a couple weeks time.

Of the update, the developers write, “Occasionally, even the most mature software needs a little freshening up. Instead of focusing on big new features and large changes, we opted to go through the backlog of bug reports and enhancement suggestions. The result is a much more polished and stable Genesis Framework.”
