Boren.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. Weâ€™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.
