I’ve just upgraded this blog to run the latest release of WordPress, it was announced a few days ago and finally had some time to kill today to run the upgrade. It was rather painless as usual. If you run WordPress on your system please upgrade as well as there are some inportant security fixes in this release, besides that, other updates to 2.0.6 include:

  • HTML quicktags now work in Safari browsers
  • Comments are filtered to prevent them from messing up your blog layout
  • Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups
  • New anti-XSS function called attribute_escape(), and a new filter called “query” which allows you filter any SQL at runtime

There was however a small bug which affected users who use feedburner, the bug got solved and here’s how to do it yourself. It will be included in the 2.0.7 release which as it looks like, will be released soon. 2.1 is scheduled to be released pretty soon as well. The first beta is already available.
