WordPress 2.0.6



UPDATED: 01/07/07

WordPress 2.0.6 was released 3 hours ago and it includes an important security fix. All WordPress users are advised to download and install this latest release.

What’s new for this version:

* 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.

Me, I’m gonna wait for a few days and see if there are any problems with this WordPress version before I go and install it. A lot of users complained about having problems after installing and upgrading to the previous version, WordPress 2.0.5. For the meantime, I’ll just go ahead and download it and wait for the right time to install it.

Before you proceed with the upgrade/update, make sure that you backup all important files such as the wp-content folder and custom files. Another safety measure is to deactivate all active plugins so that you can avoid having issues caused by conflicts with running plugins.

UPDATE:
I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.0.6. I recommend that you should do too to fix any security flaws that your blogs might have.

    @ade – I was also thinking of doing that but since WP 2.0.6 already addresses that issue, I decided to go on with the upgrade. I can't wait for the stable version of 2.1 hehe :D

    I'm holding off updating my WP install until they fix the Feedburner issue. I've already patched templates.php so I'm assured that I won't be hacked. ;)

    So basically, I'm just waiting for 2.1 :p
