I know version 0.7 of the theme is just around the corner (as soon as WordPress 2.9 is released), but wanted to go ahead and get some of the more important updates to you all.
This is a minor release but an important one.
Changes in version 0.6.2
This version is mostly about making sure all inputs (forms, translations, filters, etc.) get properly escaped on your site. Much of it is to make sure that you don’t get things like extra quotation marks in the wrong place and things like that.
I hesitate to use the word “security” because I don’t want to scare anyone. But, the WordPress escaping functions really help make things more secure, and they should be used. There are no known security exploits, but I do consider this a bit of a security-hardening release.
Some other things of note:
en_EN.pofile now recognizes
esc_attr__. This is important as more functions in the future will use these. So, translators, be sure to add those or start from the included English files.
show_post_countparameter should now work in the Archives widget.
- Deprecated templates that will be removed in 0.7:
Download Hybrid version 0.6.2
You can either delete your entire
/hybrid folder and upload a new copy. Or, you can update from your WordPress themes page in your admin.
I hope you all enjoy this new release.
