WordPress, web development, and world domination.

WordPress 1.5.2

Announcing WordPress 1.5.2, now available for download. Owen Winkler has a good plain-English description of the changes.

There is a security-related bugfix in this release, which affects servers that have register_globals turned on (which you shouldn’t). If this is the case for your server, or if you aren’t sure, then you definitely should upgrade.

Other changes include:

  • New API hooks relating to comment notification emails
  • New category-related API hooks
  • Improvements to the RSS feed for comments
  • Posting new articles is now faster
  • There is now a “Save and Continue Editing” button for Pages, like there is for Posts
  • Bugfixes related to posting via the XML-RPC interface (content encoding, categories, and API hooks)
  • Bugfixes for pingbacks (which were sometimes sent, even when turned off)
  • Various and sundry other bugfixes and legacy code cleanups
