Newest Wordpress Security Upgrade Released

Wordpress has released their newest security upgrade Wordpress 2.0.6. Here is what the site has about the update:

  • The aforementioned security fixes.
  • HTML quicktags now work in Safari browsers.
  • Comments are filtered to prevent them from messing up your blog layout.
  • Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups.
On the WP site they also announced that this would be the last upgrade before Wordpress 2.1 (which is currently in Beta) is released. Ian Robertson of has a list of expected new features in 2.1:
  • Spellchecker in TinyMCE.
  • Exporter.
  • Pages can be private and draft.
  • Pages have their own caps.
  • A Page can be used as the front page.
  • Latest posts can be moved off the front page and on to another page.
  • Pseudo-cron is used for future posting. No more NOW().
  • Link manager overhauled.
  • Links can have subcategories.
  • New login screen.
  • More AJAX to avoid page reloads.
  • Blog privacy
  • User paging and searching.
  • WP_Error class.
  • Include files reorganized.
  • Lots of new API.
  • Script loader.
From everything I have been reading this update is going to do some good things for Wordpress users but it isn't set to be released for at least a few weeks, but hey, at least we all have something to look forward to.
