WordPress 2.0.7 Released

For those of you still having problems after WordPress 2.0.6, Mark Jaquith has just put up a post on the WordPress Development blog letting everyone know that WordPress 2.0.7 is now out.

Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to our attention that could cause a security vulnerability in your blog. We’re able to work around it fairly easily, so we’ve decided to release 2.0.7 to fix the PHP security problem and the Feedburner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.
Because this is a much smaller update than previous versions, you do not have to update all of WordPress’ files if you’re upgrading from version 2.0.6. Here is the list of files that have changed since 2.0.6:

  • wp-admin/inline-uploading.php
  • wp-admin/post.php
  • wp-includes/classes.php
  • wp-includes/functions.php
  • wp-settings.php
  • wp-includes/version.php

We know it sucks to have a release only 10 days after our last one, but we think it’s important enough for your blog to be secure to do it, and hopefully only having to change a few files will make the upgrade easier than normal.

For those of you that are looking at getting into the WordPress 2.1 world as soon as it is released, if you hold off for around two weeks, it should be out, but by no means am I suggesting now upgrading your WordPress installs. I’d hate to see anyone have any problems with WordPress.
This update though reminds me once again why I want WordPress to build some sort of auto-update thing…
