The official WordPress 2.7.1 release is now ready for download. The announcement on the WordPress Development Blog is short and to the point:
2.7.1, the first 2.7 maintenance release, is now available. 2.7.1 fixes 68 tickets. You can automatically upgrade from 2.7 to 2.7.1 via the Tools->Upgrade menu, or you can download the package and upgrade manually.
Consult the list of fixed tickets and the full set of changes between 2.7 and 2.7.1 for details.
I was going to highlight some of the changes here, but really there aren’t any major things worth pointing out. And as Martha Stewart would say, “That’s a Good Thing!” The fact that the bugfixes are all so minor simply reflects the overall quality of the initial 2.7 release. Good job, dev team!
