This morning we upgraded to WordPress 3.4.2. It’s not a major release, so you probably won’t see any changes. According to the WordPress team’s blog, here’s what’s new:

…we’ve identified and fixed a number of nagging bugs, including:

  • Fix some issues with older browsers in the administration area.
  • Fix an issue where a theme may not preview correctly, or its screenshot may not be displayed.
  • Improve plugin compatibility with the visual editor.
  • Address pagination problems with some category permalink structures.
  • Avoid errors with both oEmbed providers and trackbacks.
  • Prevent improperly sized header images from being uploaded.

Version 3.4.2 also fixes a few security issues and contains some security hardening. The vulnerabilities included potential privilege escalation and a bug that affects multisite installs with untrusted users.

I’ve been disappointed by the live preview in the past, but it seems to be performing better now in terms of widgets and menus. And the multisite security fixes — not that we’ve had a problem — is always welcome.

You shouldn’t run into any problems, but if you do, drop us a line.
