A new version of WordPress (2.0.6), which fixes a major security flaw is now available. Although the update only fixes other minor issues, it is recommend you upgrade due to the security issue. For all WordPress users out there, version 2.0.6 which fixes a security flaw is now available. We upgraded Skatter Tech earlier today and had no issues what so ever.
WordPress 2.0.6 Features:
- The aforementioned security fixes.
- HTML quicktags now work in Safari browsers.
- Comments filtered to prevent messing up layout.
- Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups.
According the announcement, this is (or should be) the last minor upgrade before v2.1. The next major upgrade will bring plenty of new features rather than fixes to the engine. A beta of v2.1 is already now available for those who join the “beta group” on WordPress.org.
Note: There are apparently a few bugs which causes feed readers such as FeedBurner to have difficulty fetching feeds from this version. Despite this bug, is it is recommended you upgrade because of the security holes being patched. (A new v2.0.7 might be pushed out soon.)
