WordPress 2.6.3 Available for Download

Ugh.. I thought we’d get a break until November when WordPress v2.7 comes out, but the WordPress team has released a security update in the form of v2.6.3. πŸ™ It would be great if they would offer a patching system similar to Windows Update, but no dice. It’s not a big deal for most people, but when you’re running 40+ WordPress sites, these updates are a HUGE pain in the ass!

Fortunately, this new release updates only two files. If you don’t want to download the entire WordPress program just to get the security fix, you can download the following two files and copy them over your 2.6.2 installation:

wp-includes/class-snoopy.php
wp-includes/version.php

Replacing two files is a lot easier than upgrading an entire WordPress installation. This has been the easiest to install update yet. Hopefully upgrading this way this doesn’t screw up Fantastico down the line when it’s time to upgrade to v2.7.. Guess we’ll find out then. πŸ˜€
