Empty <title>-tag with WordPress 4.4 #70

Hi David,

yesterday I've upgraded WordPress to version 4.4 After the upgrade the front page's title tag was empty. My current workaround for this issue is removing the title tag from header.php

diff --git a/htdocs/wp-content/themes/accessible-zen/header.php b/htdocs/wp-content/themes/accessible-zen/header.php
index 14d975b..e716ed9 100755
--- a/htdocs/wp-content/themes/accessible-zen/header.php
+++ b/htdocs/wp-content/themes/accessible-zen/header.php
@@ -15,7 +15,6 @@
 <meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
 <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
-<title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>
 <link rel="profile" href="" />
 <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />
 <!--[if lt IE 9]>

I guess this is somehow related to: Document title in 4.4.

Thanks for filing the issue @p-volk!

I've pushed up a fix in the dev branch. You can download it here if you need it:

I hope to have a new release with this fix submitted to within the next week. I meant to do this earlier, but got behind on things, so thanks again for the nudge. 😄
