Folks over at Automattic have released WordPress 2.3.1. It’s a bug-fix and security release for the 2.3 branch. It contains over 20 bug-fixes and includes tagging support for Windows Live Writer. Here’s a brief list of important fixes:
- 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
Based on the changes seen on trac, I have compiled upgrade-only version of 2.3.1 which includes only those files which have been updated since last release. Those running on WordPress 2.3.0 should be able to make the quick upgrade to 2.3.1 using this zip file.
