WordPress 2.0.1

For those of you who never install “dot-zero” software releases, now is probably a good time to upgrade to WordPress 2.0.1.

All in all we’ve closed 114 bugs in the 2.0.1 release, which you’re welcome to check out if you’re curious about every fix. To summarize:

  • You can now specify an upload directory, and whether to use date-based storage or not.
  • Caching has been fixed under certain PHP enviroments.
  • Permalinks have been fixed for weird enviroments as well.
  • XML-RPC uploading works.
  • Compatibility with older versions of PHP.
  • Several WYSIWYG fixes and cleanups.
  • Imports now use much less memory.
  • Now works with MySQL 5.0 in strict mode.

There are also fixes for trackbacks, hosts running PHP in safe_mode, a couple of new API hooks, and various other things.

    Yes, it’s worth it, although it breaks the Adhesive plugin, but it fixes a lot of the problems I had to hack into the WordPress core to fix. It’s a good idea to do, trust me on this one, especially if your obsessive compulsive.

    Hi Dougal,
    Just wondering, any word on a fix for the broken RSS feed issue for the new IE7 beta? Like you weren’t busy enough already! Thanks for your work.
