submit to reddit

WordPress 2.8.1 update has been released. We have upgraded to WordPress 2.8.1 and its working fine. WordPress 2.8.1 fixed many bugs and as we all  know that this is a Security update. More security in the plugin admin page,  text editor loading problem solution, memory usage reduction,  bug fixes for IE, SSH2 file system requirements update and many more.,

Here are some of the Fixes in WordPress 2.8.1 :

* Certain themes were calling get_categories() in such a way that it would fail in 2.8. 2.8.1 works around this so these themes won’t have to change.
* Dashboard memory usage is reduced. Some people were running out of memory when loading the dashboard, resulting in an incomplete page.
* The automatic upgrade no longer accidentally deletes files when cleaning up from a failed upgrade.
* A problem where the rich text editor wasn’t being loaded due to compression issues has been worked around.
* Extra security has been put in place to better protect you from plugins that do not do explicit permission checks.
* Translation of role names fixed.
* wp_page_menu() defaults to sorting by the user specified menu order rather than the page title.
* Upload error messages are now correctly reported.
* Autosave error experienced by some IE users is fixed.
* Styling glitch in the plugin editor fixed.
* SSH2 filesystem requirements updated.
* Switched back to curl as the default transport.
* Updated the translation library to avoid a problem with mbstring.func_overload.
* Stricter inline style sanitization.
* Stricter menu security.
* Disabled code highlighting due to browser incompatibilities.
* RTL layout fixes.

Update your WordPress version and get rid of these bugs.
