Go Get Getz – WordPress 2.2 Arrives

Filed under: — Carthik @ 2:09 am

WordPress 2.2 codenamed “Getz” has been released. Read the official announcement for details.

This is all part of the new experiment to release often, and release regularly. Finally Matt’s 2005 resolution seems to be kicking in :)

Widgets in the core, that annoying bug where marking comments as spam in the admin page causes the number of displayed comments to keep decreasing has been fixed, and loads of cookies for developers, and lots of bugs including some “Highest OMG BBQ” bugs fixed.

What’s unclear is if this is just a feature-upgrade release or if it includes any security fixes? Do we all have to upgrade to be secure? It would be nice if a small note were added regarding security in the official release blog posts.

  5. Cathik,

    2.2 does indeed fix some security issues, so 2.1.3 users should all upgrade. I’ll drop Matt a note about updating the announcement post.

  8. Hi,

    I have been doing testing on the 2.3-alpha, and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to just install 2.2. From the looks of it, they are almost identical… but they aren’t. So, should i just go ahead and keep with my testing or should I install a final release?
