WordPress 3.3.1 Available for Download

This actually took longer than I thought. Normally, when WordPress introduce a brand new release, the point 1 update is only a week or two behind. This time around, WordPress almost went a full month before the maintenance update.

WordPress 3.3.1 is now available. This maintenance release fixes 15 issues with WordPress 3.3, as well as a fix for a cross-site scripting vulnerability that affected version 3.3. Thanks to Joshua H., Hoang T., Stefan Zimmerman, Chris K. and the Go Daddy security team for responsibly disclosing the bug to our security team.

Download 3.3.1 or go to your WordPress Dashboard and choose Updates in your site admin and let the software update itself.

BTW – Matt Mullenweg, the WordPress founder, is now worth $250 million. I chatted with Matt back in June when we were in Seattle. Who would have guessed he was a quarter billionaire?
