WordPress 2.3.1 is now available. 2.3.1 is a bug-fix and security release for the 2.3 series.

Here is a list of most of the changes in detail:

  • Improvements to the email address extraction in wp-mail.php (#5169).
  • An improvement to the link manager to ensure that only user with the manage_links capability can access the page (#4627).
  • A security fix to ensure that edit-post-rows.php cannot be directly loaded to prevent XSS attacks when register_globals is enabled ([6258]).
  • Groupings in the SQL queries used during upgrade to remove errors on duplicate entries in the old post2cat and link2cat tables (#5223).

  • Improvements to the handling of the main query to ensure it is saved when calling wp() (#5121).
