LinkedIn Member Profile is the official LinkedIn implementation that can’t be much customized, but it is useful to display your (or any other user) LinkedIn profile and connections.

Updates and fixes

Enhanced Posts widget has a new option to filter posts by authors (include or exclude authors). The QR Code library is updated, and the same goes for other third party libraries used in JavaScript. JavaScript files are all minified only, no longer packed. There are some minor changes to the admin interface and few fixes.
