WordPress 2.1.3 and 2.0.10 released

No new features mentioned, but new security issues fixed.

With the new development schedule, we’re still looking about 6 weeks to the next “version”. The developers also assure us that the servers are now secure- and that we don’t have to worry about someone hacking the download again.

We have a security update release now available for both the 2.1 and 2.0 branches of WordPress now available for immediate download. This update is highly recommend for all users of both branches.

These releases include fixes for several publicly known minor XSS issues, one major XML-RPC issue, and a proactive full sweep of the WordPress codebase to protect against future problems.

And the best reason to updgrade 2.1.3- especially if you are getting the error message “could not execute ajax call server didn’t return valid xml”  when you try to use your WordPress 2.1.1 or 2.1.2 spellcheck- or Firefox 2.0 spell check- 2.1.3 allows the return of your Firefox 2.0 spell check.

Something happened in 2.1.1 and .1.2 that broke the spell check on some servers- 2.1.3 fixes it.
