WordPress 2.6.5 Security Update

WordPress has been updated to version 2.6.5, which fixes one security vulnerability and three bugs. They’ve skipped the version 2.6.4 number because apparently a fake version 2.6.4 has been making its rounds on the Internet. It’s also about time to prepare for version 2.7. Although there are no new major features in 2.7, there will be quite some usability enhancements, some of which I’ve been looking forward to have.

The biggest improvement in version 2.7 for me will be the paginated comments. Some of my posts/pages have too many comments. I started to install and try out using a forum software so that the discussion threads can be more manageable. Now with paginated commenting, I’m not sure if I want to keep the forum running anymore.

We should be expecting a 2.7 release candidate very soon now, and I’m looking forward to installing it. (I already have the 2.7 beta installed on a test site, and hence have already previewed some of the new features.)
