WordPress 3.4.1 Released

in Blog

Andrew Nacin yesterday announced the release of WordPress 3.4.1. The update addresses 18 bugs that were found in WordPress 3.4.

VaultPress emailed me about this update today. When they contact customers about a security issue it’s always wise to listen to them and update your site accordingly.

Fixes include:

  • Fixes an issue where a theme’s page templates were sometimes not detected.
  • Addresses problems with some category permalink structures.
  • Better handling for plugins or themes loading JavaScript incorrectly.
  • Adds early support for uploading images on iOS 6 devices.
  • Allows for a technique commonly used by plugins to detect a network-wide activation.
  • Better compatibility with servers running certain versions of PHP (5.2.4, 5.4) or with uncommon setups (safe mode, open_basedir), which had caused warnings or in some cases prevented emails from being sent.
