WordPress 3.0.1 Released

in Blog

Andrew Nacin today announced the release of WordPress 3.0.1, the long awaited update to the highly successful WordPress 3.0 (which was downloaded close to 11 million times!).

In total 55 fixes were addressed including:

  • Incompatibilities with the export process on some servers.
  • A problem where editing the content area of a post in the new Apple iPad doesn’t work.
  • Several typos.
  • An inconsistency between the number of posts which are displayed in the admin area between different sections.

As usual, I encourage you all to temporarily disable your plugins and backup your database and files before you upgrade (particularly large websites).

You can download 3.0.1 automatically in your WordPress admin area or manually via the link below.

    “A problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors.” was actually WordPress 2.9.2. Copy-paste error on the Codex.

    If you want a bullet to replace it, you can highlight that we had some incompatibilities with the export process on some servers, and also that we fixed incompatibility with PHP 5.0.5.
