WordPress Updates

The next round of updates for the WordPress server will include improvements to WordPress itself, as well as, updates to a number of themes and plugins. The server will be down for a short time this afternoon (Thursday, March 21st) beginning at 4:30 pm.

The WordPress maintenance and security release includes fixes for how some HTML and javascript elements are handled. A few security-related fixes will be addressed as well. For specific details on what version 3.5.1 has to offer, visit the WordPress Codex page.

Most users will not likely notice a difference in the behavior of their site. If you use one of the updated themes or plugins, however, it’s always a good idea to check your site for changes in theme formatting or in plugin settings.
