A new wordpress of wordpress has been released again, after a recent release last month. In this new release, 3.7 “Basie”, wordpress will automatically apply maintenance and security updates in the background. According to wordpress.org, here are the main features of version 3.7:
Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.
We have updated all wordpress scripts to 3.7, users, your accounts should be running the latest version of wordpress, if not please let us know.
Recently all wordpress scripts have been updated to the latest version, 3.6.1
According to wordpress.org:
This maintenance release fixes 13 bugs in version 3.6, which was a very smooth release.
WordPress 3.6.1 is also a security release for all previous WordPress versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. It addresses three issues fixed by the WordPress security team:
Block unsafe PHP unserialization that could occur in limited situations and setups, which can lead to remote code execution. Reported by Tom Van Goethem.
Prevent a user with an Author role, using a specially crafted request, from being able to create a post “written by” another user. Reported by Anakorn Kyavatanakij.
Fix insufficient input validation that could result in redirecting or leading a user to another website. Reported by Dave Cummo, a Northrup Grumman subcontractor for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Additionally, we’ve adjusted security restrictions around file uploads to mitigate the potential for cross-site scripting.
In case you weren’t using the latest version of coppermine with the security fixes, we’ve upgraded your coppermine galleries to the latest version. Most people were using it already but there were a handful of people who weren’t. If you’re using any plugins you are responsible for making sure that they are secure and compatible with the version you’re using.
