Wordpress has released their newest security upgrade Wordpress 2.0.6. Here is what the site has about the update:
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 BlogBullet.com has a list of expected new features in 2.1:
- 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.
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.
