WordPress 2.0.4

Posted July 29, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Releases, Security.

WordPress 2.0.4, the latest stable release in our Duke series, is available for immediate download. This release contains several important security fixes, so it’s highly recommended for all users. We’ve also rolled in a number of bug fixes (over 50!), so it’s a pretty solid release across the board.

Upgrading is fairly simple, just overwrite your old files with the latest from the download. If you’d like more thorough instructions, the Codex is always the best spot.

Since this is a security release, if you have any friends with blogs make sure to remind them to upgrade and lend a hand if they’re not too savvy. We’re all in this together.

Thanks to Geoff and Mark Jaquith for identifying.

WordCamp in San Francisco

Posted July 11, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Events, WordCamp.

On August 5th, 2006, we’re planning a WordPress user conference called WordCamp. The idea is to bring WordPress users and developers so we can meet each other face to face, share stories, and try to figure out the future of our little corner of the online publishing revolution.

The conference will be a 1-day event, with a party that night, and be free to anyone and everyone. We’re aiming to do it in the style of BarCamp, so the agenda will be largely determined by you guys. I’ve posted a little bit more about the ideas behind WordCamp on my blog.

I know it’s relatively short notice, especially for folks in other countries, but if you think you can make it or if you just want more information check out WordCamp.org, where we’ll coordinating the event. I’m really looking forward to meeting people I interact with online every day.

Want to follow the code? There’s a development P2 blog and you can track active development in the Trac timeline that often has 20–30 updates per day.
