WordPress 2.1.1 Released

It’s that time of the month again. For those of you who never read what’s on the WordPress Dashboard, there’s a noticed on there saying Worpdress 2.1.1 has been released.

The updated fixed about 30 bugs and some security issues. It’s recommend that all WordPress users upgrade to this latest version.

We’ve got a new bugfix and security release for both of our actively maintained branches of WordPress. Version 2.1.1 includes about 30 bug fixes, mostly minor things around encoding, XML-RPC, the object cache, and HTML code. It’s available for immediate download on our download page.

It looks like all my 16 WordPress Plugins are working with this new release. If you’re running the same Plugins I am, then you shouldn’t have any problems either.

    30 days isn’t that bad considering their recent history. Looks like I’ve got a project for this evening πŸ™‚

      exactly…now I know where my evening is going too…haha…

      It doesn’t take that long to upgrade! LOL

        No, I realize it doesn’t take that long, but once I get working on my blog, then I start visiting other blogs, like your own, and then all of a sudden, the evening is gone…just like that…

        1. That’s one of the best parts about WordPress: upgrading takes no time at all, the most time consuming part is disabling/activating your plugins!

  3. Nate W. says:

    Damn I still need to make the upgrade to 2.1!

  4. Ryan says:

    I just upgraded 6 wordpress 2.0.x and 2.1 sites to 2.1.1. Looks like there aren’t any issues! πŸ˜€

    Oh and it didn’t take that long. Just backup DB, backup files, copy new files, run upgrade script, make sure everyting works, and remove upgrade script.

    Hi John,

    I’ve got two update files ready for users who wish to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.1.1 and 2.0.7 to 2.0.9.

    Do check it out

    Is this a basic “over-write these files” type of upgrade?

    Wait a minute… I just upgraded my blog last week from Serendipity to WordPress!!!

  7. Bes Z says:

    Simply update the specific files as mentioned on the WP page or as Ajay explains on his site [above] and things should go fine.

    22 files were updated and most of them are files that will probably not affect most users who modify their WP installations. Override those files and run the upgrade script to be sure [can anyone confirm if upgrading is a necessity in this case?], and you are all done.

  8. Any idea when DreamHost will have it as a One-Click Install?

    Hi John, I have been your blog reader for over a year now. Great content, all the time. I have a blog on money making matters and have been contemplating moving to wordpress but have not been so far. I guess with all the best features available at wordpress I should make the move soon.


    1. HMTKSteve says:

      What blog software are you using now? I just moved from Serendipity to WordPress.

  10. The thing I fear about WP updates is sometimes it is incompatible with custom themes designed for prior updates. Anyway, extra cash for webdesigners, right? πŸ™‚

  11. Well, since a new WordPress Upgrade has come along, just wanted to let everyone know about Meebo Me. It is a 2way Chat Widget I recently installed on my website that I like.

    Chat Live with Radu

    It allows your visitors to chat with you should you be online, in Real Time.

    Go Meebo Me.


    P.S: Perhaps you already know about this widget, in which case, disregard this comment.

    I just recently migrated from Blogger to WordPress 2.04 (and recently 2.08). I always try to be on the “cutting edge” of things, but I’m sitting this 2.1 upgrade out for the next few months, I think.

    Why the wait? I’m still getting my feet wet with WordPress and I want to learn more about it in the coming weeks and months. Maybe it’s not really all that important to know *everything* about WP, but at least the things which matter I suppose.

    Glad to see that things are running smoothly here. Who knows, I might change my mind at some point, and dive in.
