Barely 10 days after the release of WordPress 2.0.6, WordPress has upgraded it with version 2.0.7. It is recommended that everyone upgrade to this latest version.
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:
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.
The upgrade has a security fix and fixes a problem with FeedBurner. A few readers were reporting that the last WordPress messed up the feed. This problem should be fixed now.
