WordPress 4.3 Released

All users can now safely update from Dashboard -> Updates or download and update manually, though you should probably backup first just in case, unless you’re already using VaultPress, which you really should be.

WordPress 4.2.4 Released

wordpress600WordPress 4.2.4 has been released. This is a critical security release, addressing 6 security vulnerabilities, as well as 4 bugs (including a few you may have run into during the last security fix).

A huge thanks to the folks who kept us all safe by responsibly disclosing the security vulnerabilities.

If you have not done anything silly to disable automatic updates, you were already updated hours ago. If you did do something silly to disable automatic updates, then your site has been vulnerable to 6 now publicly known security vulnerabilities for at least the past 10 hours, so you should really update manually right now, and then turn your automatic updates back on.

As always, if you run into any trouble, please let us know!
