WordPress Quickly Updates from 3.2 to 3.2.1

On July 4, 2011, WordPress Version 3.2 “Gershwin”, named in honor of the composer and pianist George Gershwin, was released to the public. Part of the 3.2 release promised quicker, more focused releases of updates than the previous versions of WordPress. I guess they really meant it because just 8 days later on July 12, WordPress Version 3.2.1 was released.

Here is what was included with the 3.2 update:

  • Goodbye to PHP4 and MYSQL4
  • WordPress 3.2 is faster than others
  • New default theme and new design. The new theme is twenty eleven which is a successor to the famous twenty ten WordPress theme
  • Better post creation experience with new editor
  • Updates in the libraries like Jquery, phpmailer and smtp

Here is what was included with 3.2.1:

  • Fixes for a server JSON incompatibility
  • Some fixes to the admin panel
  • And tweaks to twentyeleven

Reminder to Update

It should go without saying that I am actually writing this post to remind readers to upgrade their WordPress versions. The easiest way to upgrade is to log into your existing wordpress website and click the reminder on the dashboard to upgrade.
