They must have known I'd only want the best. (Catch the sarcasm?) The Wordpress team have been busy these past few days, finishing off their Wordpress 2.0.6 release, and finally it's ready. It's classed as an 'Important Release', meaning that for security reasons, it's highly advised. So what's new? According to the WP.org Dev Blog...
* Security fixes, sealing various known bugs.
* HTML 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, there’s a new anti-XSS function called attribute_escape(), and a new filter called “query” which allows you filter any SQL at runtime. (Which is pretty powerful stuff!)
On the WP.org blog, they also announced that this was most likely the last release before WP 2.1 is released. If you're that desparate for it though, head over to the Beta Zone at WP and see what you can work out with the team there.
