I recommend upgrading to WordPress 2.2.1

I read a week or so ago that WordPress has released version 2.2.1 but i didn’t think it was worthwhile upgrading so soon after updating to 2.2.0. However, after reading Chris Stark’s post on the subject i decided that it was worth upgrading to the latest version.

As per Chris’s post :

Here are some of the bug updates provided by this new version:

  • Widget compatibility issue fixes
  • Atom feed fixes
  • Improvements to Page and Text Widgets
  • XML-RPC fixes Widget layout fixes for IE7

Here are some of the major security problems that were fixed:

  • Remote shell security issues with PHPMailer
  • Attribute issues in Default Theme
  • Remote SQL injection in XML-RPC

Upgrading shouldn’t take you longer than 10 minutes so i recommend putting the upgrade on your to do list πŸ™‚
