Today i upgraded my blog to use WordPress v2.8.5. I feel nothing different since this release is patch for security release as they publish it on WordPress official blog, you can read it here. I am happy to use WordPress as my blog engine. It is so easy to use and have many useful plugins. And the most important thing it is stable. And i am looking forward for the next release of the WordPress v.2.9 there are lots of new feature that you can see it here.
The headline changes in this release are:
- A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
- Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
- Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
- Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
So please check your WordPress installation, and it would be better if you update your WordPress engine to this security release.
Safe and happy blogging!
