WordPress Updates for Security

The new WordPress 3.1.4 update comes as developers push forward on the next generation of the blogging platform. The third release candidate for WordPress 3.2 is now available, including the same security and hardening fixes that are in the 3.1.4 release. Additionally, WordPress 3.2 includes some additional JavaScript, and user interface fixes.

WordPress 3.2 is also set to provide performance gains for the server that will make the blogging platform run faster. In terms of user facing changes, the WordPress 3.2 release will have a focus on distraction-free writing. The new distraction-free visual editor user interface for composing blog posts is intended to help bloggers focus more on their content.

Another big shift with WordPress 3.2 comes in the form of the minimum requirements. The Microsoft IE6 browser will no longer be supported and the server requirements have also changed and no longer support PHP 4.

“As a reminder, we’ve bumped our minimum requirements for version 3.2 to PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0,” Boren said.
