A number of people have complained to me about the WordPress upgrade cycle. Today I am sure to get more people complaining. Yes, there is yet another WordPress version out.
The fact is, on occasions like today where there is a vulnerability spotted, there is not much anyone can do. They MUST address it.
Most people understand that, it’s the fact that each release bundles new functionality or functional changes. Those new features and changes can (and sometimes do) introduce their own bugs and vulnerabilities, and so it goes on.
Here are my questions to you, I would love to know your thoughts in the comments:
- Do the developers release too many WordPress versions, too often?
- Should they split releases into bug fixes, security patches and upgrades?
- Are you an early adopter or do you wait while everyone else discovers the new bugs?
