Just in time for the New Year, WordPress finally fixes the recently exposed threat that anyone can view your future and draft posts. Also, for the full details always check out the full list of changes. Here’s what they had to say for themselves on WordPress 2.3.2 :

I haven’t tried this yet, but if this is true and works very well, this could definitely alleviate some of the problems that are caused by the Fantastico script installer. I’m excited to try this out since I’ve been meaning to play around Joomla in the near future.
Here’s the full report via MakeUseOf:
BitNami makes it easier to download and install Open Source software packages (i.e. WordPress, SugarCRM, Drupal, phpBB…) by bundling each package into preconfigured 1-click setup file. No need to deal with configuration settings or dependencies. Just download a package you need, run installation wizard, and that’s it. Once done, you will have a fully-functional and configured copy on your system.
“The BitNami Project was created to help spread the adoption of freely available, high quality Open Source web applications.”
I think an upgrade for me is in the near future:
WordPress 2.3.1 is now available. 2.3.1 is a bug-fix and security release for the 2.3 series.
2.3.1 fixes over twenty bugs. Some of the notable fixes are:
- Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
- Fixes for a login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than
their WordPress Address
- Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag intersection queries
- Link importer fixes
I am an avid Windows Live Writer user so this is absolutely the greatest news I could hear from a WordPress update…
- Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
Well, finally the WordPress 2.3 craze has died down. It’s been awhile since I’ve read about anyone upgrading or complaining about errors for WordPress 2.3. I guess that means anyone who upgraded… either it worked and they didn’t complain or it didn’t work, they complained and downgraded. It’s been about a week since my last WordPress post, so there’s a lot to take in. 30 New WordPress plugins
So, I officially upgraded several of my blogs, not this one, to WordPress 2.3. All I did was deactivate the plugins, upload the files and hit the upgrade.php link. All went smoothly, surprisingly. However, the other blogs were relatively low key and low weight, so I’m still hesitating on the upgrade here.
Also, let’s give a hearty congratulations to Lester Chan (GamerZ) for updating all of his plugins to WordPress 2.3 Compatibility.
Here’s a Long list of New and Updated plugins, as always, don’t forget to check against any of your plugins against the WordPress community 2.3 Plugin Compatibility List before upgrading.. The plugins below “should” all be compatible, but check the community list for a double check.
First, I’ve created a WordPress Category in hopes that it would make my readers lives a little easier to find all that is WordPress that I have written about.
I have also installed the Full Text Feed Plugin (WordPress 2.3 Compatible), I figured, in the ever continuing battle of full versus read more feeds, money is not my main goal, blogging is, so why would I make you go through the hassle of going to my web page every time you like a post… If you don’t like the full text feeds, feel free to comment here…
WordPress 2.3 is officially out and therefore the testing and bugs are coming in for the WordPress plugin developers. There are a slew of updated plugins being released that either originally promoted their 2.3 compatibility and new errors/bugs were corrected or plugins making it into their 2.3 compatibilty for the first time.
Don’t forget to check against the WordPress community 2.3 Plugin Compatibility List.
Here’s a Long list of New and Updated *ONLY 2.3 Compatible plugins:
Facebooked is a WordPress Theme, that I am thoroughly impressed with and it’s relatively acurate design to Facebook. It even has the the little arrows that can minimize the sidebar options.
Here’s a screenshot of the Theme in Action:
WordPress 2.3 is here. As I said previously, I’m going to wait on the WordPress 2.3 Upgrade. Now that it’s out there are a few confirmed failed upgrades out there. There was little time in between the RC1 and the Final release. The release itself appeared to have come later in the evening on the release date. Thankfully, there have been some massive movements to get everything up to speed. Also, I’m thankful to the GetK2 bunch for updating the K2 Theme to RC1 and WordPress 2.3 ready.
Below are posts, plugins and more all relating to 2.3…
