WordPress 2.5

It feels so good back to blogging! A day earlier than what I said, but I think it’s fine. Well, to start of with things, I missed out the most anticipated release of WordPress 2.5 and I’m still on the same, crappy old WordPress 2.2. I’ll upgrade in few days.

I just saw in my Dashboard that a newer version of WordPress had just released (10 min. ago), WordPress 2.5.1. It’s a security fix to the previous version.

According to the official blog, it contains a number of bug fixes, performance tweaks and a very important security fix. If you’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.5, and don’t feel like upgrading it so soon, you can update the fixed files only. Download wp-includes/pluggable.php, wp-admin/includes/media.php, and wp-admin/media.php. And replace them with the existing copies.

By the way, I would suggest you to do a full upgrade, because you will be getting over 70 other fixes. Here are some of the highlights from the official blog:

  • Performance improvements for the Dashboard, Write Post, and Edit Comments pages.
  • Better performance for those who have many categories
  • Media Uploader fixes
  • An upgrade to TinyMCE 3.0.7
  • Widget Administration fixes
  • Various usability improvements
  • Layout fixes for IE

So, hurry up! Grab the latest release now! And I’ll also try out the newer version in a couple of days. :D
