WordPress 2.0.6 released with security fixes

WordPress version 2.0.6 was released a couple of hours back. It consists of quite a few security updates and an upgrade is recommend on the double.

What’s new:

  • The aforementioned security fixes
  • HTML quicktags now work in Safari browsers
  • Comments are filtered to prevent them from messing up your blog layout
  • Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups

This version offers a new anti-XSS function called attribute_escape() and a new & really powerful filter called “query” which allows you filter any SQL at runtime.

This is supposed to be the last major release prior to WordPress v2.1. Upgradation details can be found at the Codex Pages.
