WordPress v2.0.5 Is Out!

Yep, WordPress v2.0.5 is out. It consists mostly of bug and security fixes as most new features are being held off for the upcoming version of WordPress, v2.1 (which I have a lot of code in BTW! :D).

To see what’s changed, you can check out the tickets that were closed for 2.0.5 or you can check out Mark’s post.

EDIT: If you’re running v2.0.4, Mark has a download of just the changed files to save you time.

    Oh and “Why is it called Ronan?” you ask… Well, you didn’t but I didn’t catch the reference at first, so maybe you didn’t either. It’s named after the very first WordPress Baby: Ryan Boren’s little boy Ronan. Pictures are available here:
