Time to upgrade WordPress again!
WordPress 3.1.1 is now available. This maintenance and security release fixes almost thirty issues in 3.1, including:
- Some security hardening to media uploads
- Performance improvements
- Fixes for IIS6 support
- Fixes for taxonomy and PATHINFO (/index.php/) permalinks
- Fixes for various query and taxonomy edge cases that caused some plugin compatibility issues
Version 3.1.1 also addresses three security issues discovered by WordPress core developers Jon Cave and Peter Westwood, of our security team. The first hardens CSRF prevention in the media uploader. The second avoids a PHP crash in certain environments when handling devilishly devised links in comments, and the third addresses an XSS flaw.
We suggest you update to 3.1.1 promptly. Download 3.1.1 or update automatically from the Dashboard → Updates menu in your site’s admin area.
There are some security related fixes in this version, so please upgrade your website or have our website maintenance team do it for you!
