WordPress 4.9.2 is now available. This is a security and maintenance release for all versions since WordPress 3.7. If you are a client at WPEZI, we will be upgrading you to the latest version of WordPress.
Here is what this new version of WordPress solves:
An XSS vulnerability was discovered in the Flash fallback files in MediaElement, a library that is included with WordPress. Because the Flash files are no longer needed for most use cases, they have been removed from WordPress.
MediaElement has released a new version that contains a fix for the bug, and a WordPress plugin containing the fixed files is available in the plugin repository.
21 other bugs were fixed in WordPress 4.9.2. Particularly of note were:
- The previous taxonomy-agnostic behavior of
- Switching themes will now attempt to restore previous widget assignments, even when there are no sidebars to map.
