WordPress 2.0.7 is out

Yes, it’s only ten days since I mentioned that WordPress 2.0.6 was available, but a combination of the FeedBurner issue and a nasty security problem that could be a major problem for WordPress installations on some servers has led to the rather rapid release of WordPress 2.0.7.

This is a security update, and all WordPress users are advised to upgrade. If you’re already on 2.0.6[1], you just need to replace six files, which are listed on the Development Blog. If you’re on an earlier version, you might want to look at Bryan Layman’s nifty upgrade script. I used a slightly earlier version to get to 2.0.6, and a much earlier version for 2.0.5, and it worked nicely for me.

However you upgrade, make sure you do.

Version 2.1 is scheduled for release this time next week. But if you’re not ready for the major changes that will bring, don’t worry – the developers will continue to maintain 2.0.x for a long time to come.

    Well, after some time :duh: , I think I’ve figured out the answer. It is
    1,3,10,20,11,2,12,15,16,22,18,7,6,9,13,4,19,5,8,14, 21,17

    Is that the correct answer? :yes:

    Oh! I should say that I am referring to your sounds page and the correct ordering of the conversation… There was no place to leave a comment, but that was a puzzle wasn’t it? When I load them all up in MusicMatch, in the correct order, I get this conversation…

    You have to play them backwards while balancing a sea lion on your nose[1] to get the full impact of the hidden message

    [1] A phrase that popped into my head recently. I think it likes it there, as it’s apparently quite a strange place

    That depends on what you think a “hit” is.

    A “hit” or indeed a “request” is a connection for an item – that could be the main page, or an image, or a script file, or an embedded video, or…..

    Not as good as you might think. That includes you working on the site (each smilie is a request, on each page that it loads) and it includes Google wandering over your site.
