    initial v1  
    11An issue I'm not seeing explicitly mentioned is that the 4.9 update effectively frelled live sites that are not under development and have not made recent template changes. Also, if the template cache is supposed to update every hour or so, I’ve not seen any evidence of that.

    3 I updated my sites several days ago and am now receiving emails about pages that were fine before updating to 4.9 – WordPress still has not gotten around to noticing the collection of page templates included in my parent theme.  For example, the 4.9 update failed to notice any of my parent theme page templates except for the 'default' template. Pages using the default template or a child theme template were fine, but any pages using one of the optional parent theme templates were reset to the 'default' template. I couldn’t even fix the pages until after finding one of the custom plugins especially developed to clear this new cache.

    5 I'll be spending the rest of the day clearing the template cache on ten different websites and looking at pages to see which ones I need to manually reset them to use the proper template...   
     5In addition to clearing the cache, I first had to copy all of the parent theme page templates into my child theme folder in order to get WordPress 4.9 to notice optional page templates included in the parent theme. Arrrghhh...
