Latest WordPress 3.1.1 Available for Download

Posted by Linda | 10:36 AM

Wordpress, the worlds most widely used blogging platform has released the latest version 3.1.1. It is now available for download. As you can see, this blog does not use it, but a lot others out there run on the very popular wordpress platform.

According to their update log, this release fixes over 30 security and maintenance issues which include:

  • Some security hardening to media uploads
  • Performance improvements
  • Fixes for IIS6 support
  • Fixes for taxonomy and PATHINFO (/index.php/) permalinks
  • Fixes for various query and taxonomy edge cases that caused some plugin compatibility issues
One very important issue fixed is the media uploader hole - this ensures that media files are properly checked prior to granting access and allowed to run on the system.

If you run your site on an older version, you may want to update now as older versions could be open to exploits. If you host with some of the major hosting providers, upgrading is very easy - it takes just a click of a button and you're running the latest version.

Note: this post is not to alert you that there's an update - of course you usually see a notice on your dashboard. But this post is to simply draw your attention to some of the security and maintenance issues fixed in the update.
