WordPress 2.6.1 Released

Last Updated on by

It was just announced today that WordPress 2.6.1 has been released. While this release is not mandatory, it fixes over 60 bugs including:

  • Better support for international users and RTL (right to left) text
  • Several permalink fixes for IIS users
  • Image insertion problems in IE fixed

Remember, this upgrade is not required if you’re happy with WordPress 2.6 as it is. It was just released to address some of the bugs in the 2.6 branch. Try to ignore the “WordPress 2.6.1 is available!” message in your admin panel if you choose not to upgrade.
