WordPress 2.8.5 Just Released

Oct 20, 2009 by     9 Comments    Posted under: Wordpress

I would suggest upgrading to the latest WordPress Version that was released which is WordPress 2.8.5 .

It’s a security update so don’t think twice. Here is the headlines for the updates:

The headline changes in this release are:

* A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
* Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
* Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
* Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.

  • I don’t understand why they released the new version so quickly after the last update 2 months ago.
    I don’t see any changing in this new version. It’s not really necessary to upgrade.

    • @V.C,

      They usually do this when there are some security issues that they need to fix.

      • @Dexter Panganiban, That’s pointless.

      • @V.C,

        Are you aware that wordpress is free, and we are not paying for whatever they are doing for us. I believe we have to be thankful if they are just thinking what is better for our site. Just my opinion

  • sounds interesting…

    • @Jaypee,
      It is , that is why we need to upgrade as soon as possible if you use WordPress.

  • I didn’t know that…
