WordPress upgrade

I have just upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.1.3. Although there is no major changes on the look and feel and functionalities, it is highly recommended to upgrade because the latest version includes fixes for several publicly known minor XSS issues, one major XML-RPC issue, and a proactive full sweep of the WordPress codebase to protect against future problems.

I can’t wait till WordPress 2.2 is released. It looks very promising with some attractive features as below:

  • Tagging
  • Permalink redirection
  • Improved comment editing
  • Atom 1.0 support for feeds
  • Multiple format comment feeds, including Atom
  • Switched to jQuery for core JS, which is lighter and faster
  • Atom API support
  • Additional XML-RPC APIs for pages and such
  • phpmailer – integrated for performance and maintainability
