WordPress 2.8.3 Released

Last Updated on by

WordPress 2.8.3 was just released, just a couple weeks after the last one. This is a security update, so it’s highly recommended you upgrade immediately.

What exactly is fixed? According to Ryan Boren, some things that were supposed to be fixed in 2.8.2, as he “missed some places when fixing the privilege escalation issues.”

No worries Ryan, we’re all human. This is open source at its best, as several community members saw these overlooked areas and contributed to the fix. As always, make a WordPress backup before upgrading.

P.S. I left a message on Twitter a few hours ago about the winning Slick Red theme from last week’s theme battle. Make sure to check this page periodcally to check the Slick Red coding in progress.
