WordPress 2.2.1 is almost ready!

wordpress upgradeBoren.nu announced earlier that WordPress 2.2.1 is almost ready. 2.2.1 fixes bugs in widgets, xmlrpc, atom feeds, and other areas. 2.2.1 also addresses security issues found in xmlrpc and phpmailer. We’ll have more on that in the release notes.

A release candidate is available for testing. Try it out, and drop a comment letting us know if you have any problems with it.

All changes made since 2.2 can be viewed here. A list of all bugs fixed in 2.2.1 is here.

Assuming no nasty bugs are discovered in the RC, 2.2.1 should be released within the next couple days.
