WordPress 2.0.6- Update with security fix

WordPress released 2.0.6 yesterday- and it’s supposedly the last release before the much awaited 2.1

Apple users should be happy that Safari will now display quicktags- but, as always, Firefox is the browser of choice for WordPress users (and with Firefox 2.0 you get spell check!).

Development Blog › WordPress 2.0.6

Here’s what’s new:* The aforementioned security fixes.
* HTML quicktags now work in Safari browsers.
* Comments are filtered to prevent them from messing up your blog layout.
* Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups.

Not just the “Options>Writing” menu- but also under the user menus. AHA! That was the answer- somehow, under my user profile the “Use Visual Rich Editor by default” box has become unchecked.

Checked it- hit save, and voila, my visual rich editor (TinyMCE) was fixed. Hope this helps someone else.
