WordPress 3.1.4 and 3.2 RC3 published
The WordPress.org development team has released version 3.1.4 of its open source blogging and publishing platform, a maintenance and security update to WordPress 3.1 released in late February. According to the developers, the latest stable update addresses a security vulnerability that could allow a malicious editor-level user to gain further access to the site. Other changes include fixes for several other security issues and improved hardening measures.
As previously noted by the developers, version 3.2 of WordPress has new system requirements: PHP 5.24 and MySQL 5.0. Users testing the release are asked to provide feedback and report any bugs that they encounter in the forums, mailing lists, over IRC on irc.freenode.net #wordpress-dev or directly into the WordPress Trac.
Further information about the latest stable and development versions can be found in the announcement news post and in the 3.1.3 change log. WordPress 3.1.4 and 3.2 Release Candidate 3 (direct download) are available to download from the project's web site. Alternatively, 3.1.x users can update automatically via the Dashboard > Updates menu in the site admin area. WordPress is licensed under the GNU General Public Licence (GPL).
