WordPress 3.1.3 and 3.2 beta 2 released

Yesterday night, Worpdress released 3.1.3 as a part of security update. And since it contains some important security fixes, I would recommend you to update to it immediately. Here are list of changes in 3.1.3:

  • Various Security Hardening measures
  • Taxonomy Query Hardening
  • Prevent sniffing out user names of non-authors by using canonical redirects.
  • Media security fixes
  • Improves file upload security on hosts with dangerous security settings.
  • Cleans up old WordPress import files if the import does not finish.
  • Introduce “clickjacking” protection in modern browsers on admin and login pages.

Either download it and install manually or upgrade to it from your Dashboard.

WordPress 3.2 Beta 2 was also announced yesterday. Here is what you can expect from it:

  • Google Chrome Frame is now supported in the admin to support IE 6 users.
  • Admin Theme fixes for IE 7.
  • Blue Color Theme updated for the new Dashboard Design.
  • jQuery updated to 1.6.1. You should test any JS that uses jQuery. Read the post by Andrew Ozz.
