Archive for 2008

As you may, or may not, have noticed, WordPress 2.5 was released earlier today.

This release has some large changes including, but not limited to:

  • New admin interface
  • Multi file upload
  • Automatic plugin updates
  • Built in galleries
  • And much, much more...

For a more complete list, I'd suggest looking at the release notes.

A big thank you to all those people that contributed to this release.

Ok, it happened... Lloyd convinced me to sign up as a Mentor for the WordPress application to the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2008.

For now it's only as a backup mentor because I don't know what work is going to do around the summer, but I'm still pretty excited.

A few days ago WordPress 2.3.3 was released.

If you're running the 2.3 branch of WordPress it's a required update, as it fixes a security issue (among other things)

For the issue to be exploitable. the bad guy would need an account on your blog (even if it's just subscriber). When he has an account he can change the content of any post on your blog. (Inserting a malicious ifame is what we've seen most so far)

So to summerize this post in one word: UPGRADE.
