WordPress 2.0.7 released

Are you tired of all the Drupal and WordPress posts we've been doing lately here at CMS Report? Not my fault...I only report the CMS news! The fact is that among the open source CMS that I post about...both Drupal and WordPress have been churning out a lot since the New Year started. The release of Wordpress 2.0.7 is just a good example as any.

Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to our attention that could cause a security vulnerability in your blog. We’re able to work around it fairly easily, so we’ve decided to release 2.0.7 to fix the PHP security problem and the Feedburner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.

Interestingly, if you are upgrading from WordPress 2.0.6, you don't want to do a complete update. Instead, you can just copy over the following six files to get you at version 2.0.7:

  • wp-admin/inline-uploading.php
  • wp-admin/post.php
  • wp-includes/classes.php
  • wp-includes/functions.php
  • wp-settings.php
  • wp-includes/version.php

Finally, a word of warning...WordPress 2.1 is expected to be released toward the end of the month. What does this mean to you? Well, it means you are going to have to read more WordPress news here at CMS Report!
