There are new updates for users of WordPress, in fact, both branches of users are updating. Judging from the updates, WP 2.1 is now considered to be the successor, and WP 2.0.9 will only receive security updates for the time being. As a result, I’m thinking of switching my blogs to the newer branches. I don’t know how easy it will be for this blog to update to WP2.1, I don’t fancy the switch just yet. Anyway here’s the news release:
We’ve got a new bugfix and security release for both of our actively maintained branches of WordPress. Version 2.1.1 includes about 30 bug fixes, mostly minor things around encoding, XML-RPC, the object cache, and HTML code. It’s available for immediate download on our download page.
Version 2.0.9 only includes the security update, which was around the code we use to prevent XSS. You can download it from our release archive. As a reminder, we’ve committed to proving security updates to 2.0 through 2010, but all new features and development are going into the newer branch, which is at this time 2.1.
