So, I updated my blog to 2.06…didn’t really notice anything that new or changed about it. According to wordpress.org, here is what has changed:
We have a pretty important release available for everyone, it includes an important security fix and itâ€™s recommended that everyone upgrade. This is the latest release in our stable 2.0 line, which weâ€™ve committed to maintaining for several more years.
Hereâ€™s whatâ€™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, thereâ€™s a new anti-XSS function called attribute_escape(), and a new filter called â€œqueryâ€ which allows you filter any SQL at runtime.
I see that WP 2.1 is coming soon. I will see if I can get a copy of it and test my site out with it. I also took some time to update my plugins…I need to find a nice plugin update notifier…wonder if one exists.
