With all of the housekeeping (and phone calls and emails and instant messages i had with my hosting provider) I just now got around to upgrading to WordPress 2.0.6.
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(link) 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. (Which is pretty powerful.) Thanks to Mark Jaquith for handling this release and Stefan Esser for responsibly reporting the security issue.
