Expecting WordPress 2.6.2 Soon

Posted in Site News


Dougal Campbell has spoken about the up-coming WordPress 2.6.2-beta 1. In his post, Dougal has mentioned that the next version is likely to include a fix for the Textpattern importer, a bug fix that prevents an attempt to make a revision of a revision, a new ‘login_redirect’ filter, a new ‘wp_rand()’ function, and a handful of other minor bug fixes.

While this is not yet officially released, this beta version is already in the SVN repository. Keep an eye on it!

WordPress 2.6.1 Now Released

Posted in Business Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

WordPressWordPress 2.6.1 was released just a couple of minutes ago. In the past, I would always mention “… users are advised to upgrade to the latest version…“, well not this time. According to Ryan, users need not upgrade to the latest version of 2.6.1 if version 2.6 is working fine for you.

The release of this sub-version is simply to continue the trend of releasing a maintenance release shortly after a major release, to get fixes for the bugs that might be present in the official release.
