Contact Form 7 4.9 is now available. If you have contact forms for logged-in users, the newly introduced Subscribers-Only Mode will be a great improvement. 4.9 adds new filter hooks and a custom DOM event that allows you to control your contact forms more flexibly. Fixes for several bugs seen in the previous versions are also included. I strongly recommend upgrading to 4.9 now.

The default contact form template has been modified for the first time in 8 years. The major change is the addition of
label element to label a form control is recommended in accessibility guidelines. In earlier versions, the default template didn’t use
label elements, so you had to add them on your own if you wanted to make your form accessible.
In the early versions released before 2008,
label elements were used in their default template, but they were abandoned for a reason.
