File differences between 2.3.1 and 2.3.2

Deimos’s Thoughts
At first I find it a bit troublesome that WordPress did not offer update packages, instead they always shove all the files into each release.

Today I realized that they got list out which files were modified / updated, so basically one only needs to update those modified / updated files in order to update their WordPress to the latest version.

From WordPress’s official announcement page, it seems that this release is another security fix. I guess it would be advisable to update as soon as possible aye?

Would not be very pleasant if one’s draft entries are exposed?

So, my dear fellow bloggers, have you already updated your WordPress to the lastest version?

    Anyone else here use Fantastico to manage your WordPress installation? I installed WordPress using it and auto-updated to 2.3.1 using it, so I’m afraid to manually install this patch in case it breaks something. It doesn’t look like the Fantastico package for this is ready yet.

    [Total silence in here …] 😐
    Not sure if the horde of commentators would be coming back in here or not. 👿
    Anyway, if you follow the instructions as explained above, your WordPress should update just fine without any problems. 🙂
    Do you have any questions to ask? 🙂
