WordPress 2.2.2 and 2.0.10

Two new security releases for WordPress were released today. Color me unimpressed. I know they need to continually stay ahead of the curve when it comes to security, but I continually find myself crying for a built in update utility within WordPress.

Here are the details from the blog:

Today we have two security-related releases available for both users of our main 2.2 branch and the legacy 2.0 branch. As these releases include only security and minor bugfixes they should not cause any plugin or theme compatibility issues, so you have no good excuse not to upgrade.

Make sure you update all your blogs. I’d hate to see anyone have issues due to a security problem.

Also, thanks again to Automattic and team for keeping that 2.0 branch’s security updated as I am sure those few that haven’t come over to the wonderful world of 2.2 are happy.

    I’m not sure of a built-in utility… but a ‘built-out’ utility might be nice. Allowing a person to put their ftp address and authorization information – then have some scripts do the rest.

    The problem with a ‘built-in’ utility is that it could make the system extremely vulnerable.

    The other nice tool would be a plugin version checker. This could easily be done using an API and a db of plugins.

    The 2.0 branch is maintained by Mark Jaquith, who is a WP core developer and works for b5media, so if you want to thank anyone please send it his way. :)
