WordPress 3.1.4 and 3.2 Release Candidate 3 Now Available



WordPress 3.1.4

Heads up to all WordPress users! The WordPress dev team has recently released WordPress 3.1.4 which is a maintenance and security update for previous versions of the software. If you have multiple authors/users with Editor-level access on your WordPress blog or website, then you need to upgrade ASAP!

WordPress 3.1.4 fixes an issue that could allow Editor-level users to gain further access to the site. This latest version also includes several security fixes and hardening measures.

You can download WordPress 3.1.4 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.

Btw, I’ve already upgraded this blog to WordPress 3.1.4 and the upgrade process went smoothly – no crashes, compatibility issues, etc.

Aside from WordPress 3.1.4, the dev team has also released WordPress 3.2 Release Candidate 3 which contains all fixes added to 3.1.4, few minor RTL, Javascript and other user interface fixes. It also includes features that will ensure graceful failures when WordPress 3.2 is run or installed on PHP4. This is done in case the user forgets that the minimum requirements for WordPress 3.2 is PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.

Anyone else upgraded to WordPress 3.1.4 or have tried the WordPress 3.2 RC 3? How’s your experience so far? Have you encountered any issues so far? Please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
