WordPress 2.0.5 is out!

Yae! WordPress 2.0.5 is out 6 hours ago! Time to upgrade.

Do you keep up with the versions of WordPress, or are you laid back and don’t bother with the upgrade? Well, I understand its not necessary to upgrade, unless you are Google or Yahoo or have millions of enemies out there trying to hack into your blog every single minute. Sometimes its a terrible hassle to do so too, especially if your have multiple blogs or your plug-ins start to get quirky after the upgrade.

Anyway, here are the changes. Not much on what I’m concerned about yet.

But I’m upgrading mine after my lunch! :mrgreen: Maybe it just that perfectionist me. Well.

  2. Thanks for spreading the word about the update. With the number of people still running older releases, and the major security holes that continue to be closed in each 2.0.x release, it is very important to get everyone off of the older versions. The two biggest reasons to upgrade to 2.0.5, as I see it, are:
    1. This is, again, major security release. There was a major hole plugged;
    2. If you started your blog with version 2.0 or newer, you’re missing a DB index on the post table and that will slow down your site.

    I’ve provided more detail in a top 5 list on my own site, but you can always look at the official list of all 60 tickets addressed. I use this link to look at it in order of priority.

    Please continue to convince your friends and everyone on your blog roll to upgrade, it is important. If any of them are worried about upgrading, I’ve included a 35 second upgrade script on my site. It’s been reviewed by the members of the WP-Hackers list. So, it is safe. I’d post the link here, but I’m releasing an updated version of it later today and don’t want the old links floating around. Just look at the Code Cave article link I posted above and follow it from there. 35 seconds for multiple blogs beats 20 minutes to do it by hand.

  3. Thanks Brian! Yes, I understand its important to upgrade. Over my past few months of surfing around, I’ve been checking out the meta tags, and I’m surprised that a lot of blogs out there were using 2.0.3… some even still stuck with 1.X versions!

  4. For the benefit of my readers – translation of the first comment from Babelfish

    “The WordPress is one of the more used systems of creation of blogs in the blogosfera. Version 2.0.5 was launched recently that it comes to correct some bugs in feeds and also some imperfections of security. The WebTuga uses this system and was today of morning ac…”

    Babelfish works miracles isn’t it? I originally didn’t understand a single thing from that paragraph!

    Obrigado! 🙂 (I hope that translates well)
