Two days ago I wrote about the upcoming features in WordPress 3.1. And then, bam, a required security update, version 3.0.2, has been released. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen one of these (anyone remember the 2.8 series) and I do recommend updating WordPress to address this security issue.
WordPress 3.1 is scheduled for release on December 15th. Of course, that date is subject to change but it will be coming out soon-ish.
Here are some of the features we have to look forward to in the next version of WordPress.
One of the downsides of writing a bunch of posts ahead of time and obsessively sticking to a posting schedule, is that when something big happens you end up being a little late to the party. And I wish WordPress 3.0 hadn’t been released during the World Cup – there is just too many big things happening in too many of my interests all at once.
WordPress 3.0 has finally been released. I haven’t installed it on this site yet but I did install one of the betas on a test site a couple of weeks ago. There are some things that I really like but I think that developers are going to be more excited about it than the average user.
You may have noticed the WordPress update in your WordPress admin for version 2.9.2.
This is a security release but isn’t one to worry about unless you have multiple authors on your blog and particularly if anyone is allowed to register as an author.
And it can be an issue if you leave “sensitive” posts in the trash, which is a new feature of the WordPress 2.9 series.
Basically any logged in user can view posts left in the trash. Even posts that they didn’t write.
Oh look. A birthday gift from the WordPress folks to me.
WordPress 2.8.2 was released on July 20th and is a security fix
I didn’t notice this until tonight because I’ve been out of the loop, ignoring the news, and freaking out. I tried to take a day off, tried to celebrate another journey around the sun, and tried to deal with an extremely sick kid with a Foreigner (the band) style fever.
