Attention all WordPress users! Just a few hours ago, the WordPress dev team released WordPress 3.1.3 which is a security update for all previous versions of the software. If you haven’t upgraded to this latest release, you are strongly encouraged to do so A.S.A.P. Below are the different updates, patches and bug fixes included in WordPress 3.1.3:
You can download WordPress 3.1.3 and do the upgrade manually or you can choose to do it the easy way via the WordPress admin panel — Dashboard > Updates. Be sure to backup your WordPress database and deactivate all active plugins before performing the upgrade.
Aside from WordPress 3.1.3, the dev team has done a scheduled released WordPress 3.2 Beta 2, thirteen days after Beta 1 was released. Again, this beta version was released for testing purposes so only use it on a test site, not on a live/production site and please provide feedback or report any bugs you encounter.
New stuff included in WordPress 3.2 Beta 2:
For those who tried to access this blog earlier and noticed that it was down, it was because I was upgrading to WordPress 3.1.3. The upgrade process went smoothly and so far there’s no issues or problems (plugin incompatibilities) with the new version. If you haven’t upgraded yet, please spend a few minutes of your time to do it. Better safe than sorry!
