WordPress 2.2.1 is almost ready. 2.2.1 fixes bugs in widgets, xmlrpc, atom feeds, and other areas. 2.2.1 also addresses security issues found in xmlrpc and phpmailer. We’ll have more on that in the release notes.
A release candidate is available for testing. Try it out, and drop a comment letting us know if you have any problems with it.

thx, seems good but I don’t use widgets
Thanks, for updating. I hope it fixes most of the bugs that were in 2.2.
Thanks for announcing these things here, I’d never find out otherwise. 🙂
By the way, this page tries to load
which fails, of course.
Nifty. I’ll check it out.
i’ll test it.i will contact if there is any mistake
I have been waiting for this to come out. 2.2 may have fixed and added a lot of things, but it seems that it broke just as many things as it created.
Here is hoping that 2.2.1 is a happy experience.
Wee!!!! I really love how WordPress is developed. When a newer version is released, there are so many features. I hope WordPress will soon become the best.
Thanks for the announcement. I’ve found 2.2 to be very stable and performance is good. I might hold off on 2.2.1 and wait a bit as the bugs in 2.2 haven’t affected me yet.
Will wordpress release updates in patches like Unix, it will be much easier to install 🙂
Any word on 2.0.11? I noticed RC3 available.
Also, the 2.1.x line is no longer being updated/supported… correct?
Glad to see the “widget fix” is being made so quickly after the 2.2 update. You guys are doing a phenomenal job with keeping up on what amounts to be a truly robust CMS program.
