Upgraded to the latest version 2.0.6 today.
We have a pretty important release available for everyone, it includes an important security fix and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s recommended that everyone upgrade. This is the latest release in our stable 2.0 line, which weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve committed to maintaining for several more years.
HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new:
* 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.
For developers, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a new anti-XSS function called attribute_escape(), and a new filter called Ã¢â‚¬Å“queryÃ¢â‚¬Â which allows you filter any SQL at runtime. (Which is pretty powerful.) Thanks to Mark Jaquith for handling this release and Stefan Esser for responsibly reporting the security issue.
As always, you can download the latest version of WordPress here.
As a side note, this is probably our last release before 2.1 is out, which will be our first major feature release in quite a while. 2.1 just entered beta stage, so if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re interested in helping out with that process consider joining our beta group. As a reminder, if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a plugin or theme author you should check your code to make sure itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s compatible with 2.1 before the release.
