WordPress 2.0.3 Released

A new stable release of WordPress is out. Version 2.0.3 is now available at
I was really hoping for a larger version jump, but security enhancements and whatnot are always welcome, though now I have to go update close to twenty blogs, at two or three minutes a blog, I am looking at an hour to update them all. When is WordPress going to have an update option in its Admin panel that can automate the process a bit more?

The latest in the stable 2.0 series, 2.0.3, is now available for download. This is a bug fix and security release, and is recommended for all WordPress users. In addition to an issue that was raised on Bugtraq a few days ago, we’ve also backported a number of security enhancements from 2.1 to further enhance and protect your blog.
For the curious, this release includes:

  • Small performance enhancements
  • Movable Type / Typepad importer fix
  • Enclosure (podcasting) fix
  • The aforementioned security enhancements (nonces)

Mark Jaquith has already taken it upon himself to release a zip file of the changed files as well as a command line diff file, and a list of changed files. This could save people some time, but read through his post completely, and as always backup your stuff before upgrading, also make sure you get the latest version of Akismet.
