WordPress 3.1.1 is Now Available

As I suspected, the next update to WordPress wouldn’t take long to emerge. Whether it fixes some of the problems previously mentioned we will have to wait and see.

The comments from WordPress.org are:

WordPress 3.1.1 is now available. This maintenance and security release fixes almost thirty issues in 3.1, including:

* 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

Version 3.1.1 also addresses three security issues discovered by WordPress core developers Jon Cave and Peter Westwood, of our security team. The first hardens CSRF prevention in the media uploader. The second avoids a PHP crash in certain environments when handling devilishly devised links in comments, and the third addresses an XSS flaw.

We suggest you update to 3.1.1 promptly. Download 3.1.1 or update automatically from the Dashboard ? Updates menu in your site’s admin area.

Oh well, let’s upgrade and beholden to what the gurus say we should have.

  3. I actually like WordPress 3.1.1. It solves a few problems I have with the theme I am using. Not all the problems, but some on them. I will delve deeper into the darkness of PHP to find out why – one day.
