WordPress 3.1 vrijgegeven

Aan het lange wachten is eindelijk een einde gekomen, zojuist is WordPress 3.1 vrijgegeven. WordPress 3.1 komt, zoals je mocht verwachten, met een paar nieuwe features, maar deze versie gaat met name te boek als een versie waar er bovenal onderhuids veel verbeterd is. Volgens de blog op WordPress.org:

This release features a lightning fast redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to your existing posts and pages, an admin bar so you’re never more than a click away from your most-used dashboard pages, a streamlined writing interface that hides many of the seldom-used panels by default to create a simpler and less intimidating writing experience for new bloggers (visit Screen Options in the top right to get old panels back), and a refreshed blue admin scheme available for selection under your personal options.

There’s a bucket of candy for developers as well, including our new Post Formats support which makes it easy for themes to create portable tumblelogs with different styling for different types of posts, new CMS capabilities like archive pages for custom content types, a new Network Admin, an overhaul of the import and export system, and the ability to perform advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries.

Veel plezier met deze versie!

WordPress 3.0.5 vrijgegeven plus WordPress 3.1 RC4

Gisteren is door het core developers team van WordPress versie 3.0.5 vrijgegeven welke een paar veiligheidsissues aanpakt die niet konden wachten op de release van WordPress 3.1. Dit is wat ze er over te zeggen hadden:

Two moderate security issues were fixed that could have allowed a Contributor- or Author-level user to gain further access to the site.

One information disclosure issue was addressed that could have allowed an Author-level user to view contents of posts they should not be able to see, such as draft or private posts.

Two security enhancements were added. One improved the security of any plugins which were not properly leveraging our security API. The other offers additional defense in depth against a vulnerability that was fixed in previous release.

Zoals gezegd is tegelijkertijd versie de 4e Release Candidate vrijgegeven van WordPress 3.1. Mocht je hier mee willen testen dan kun je deze downloaden vanaf onze download pagina.
