Today morning I have seen the message in my dashboard saying “WordPress 3.1.4 is available! Please update now.”
Yes, WordPress 3.1.4 (and 3.2 Release Candidate 3) is available now and is a maintenance and security update for all previous versions. Few days ago WordPress introduced the version of wordpress 3.1.3.
This release fixes an issue that could allow a malicious Editor-level user to gain further access to the site. Thanks K. Gudinavicius of SEC Consult for bringing this to WordPress attention. WordPress 3.1.4 also incorporates several other security fixes and hardening measures thanks to the work of WordPress developers Alexander Concha and Jon Cave of WordPress security team. Consult the change log for more details.
Download WordPress 3.1.4 or update immediately from the Dashboard updates menu in your site’s admin area.
WordPress 3.2 Release Candidate 3
To test WordPress 3.2, try the WordPress Beta Tester Plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the release candidate here (zip). At this stage, plugin authors should be doing final tests to ensure compatibility.
For more information about WordPress 3.1.4 is available at WordPress.org.
