WordPress 2.3.1 Released

In case you hadn’t already heard, the quickly released update to WordPress has been released. If you have been holding out for a point release of the new WordPress 2.3 for them to solve some bugs, this is your chance.

They have fixed over twenty bugs, including some security issues.

Here are some of the key fixes:

  • Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
  • Fixes for a login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than their WordPress Address
  • Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag intersection queries
  • Link importer fixes

I really wish this wasn’t also a security release, but that’s how it is sometimes, so please, if you are using WordPress 2.2 or 2.3, it is time to upgrade again.
