With 2.6.1, we’re continuing our trend of releasing a dot one release about a month after dot zero. We want to get fixes for the inevitable dot zero bugs into your hands without a long wait. If you’re happy with 2.6, you can ignore 2.6.1.
If you are an IIS or i18n user, we’ve fixed a few annoying bugs that might be bothering you depending on your hosting setup. If you are an IE user who uses Press This, we fixed some image insertion problems for you. Check out the full list of almost 50 fixes and see if 2.6.1 has something to offer you.
If 2.6.1 looks interesting or if you just want to help us test and make sure we didn’t break anything else, go grab the 2.6.1 beta 1 package. If all goes well, expect the final 2.6.1 release before WordCamp San Francisco rolls around.
