WordPress 2.5.1 is Out

By Daniel Scocco

WordPress 2.5 was a major version upgrade, so a complementary update was expected to fix any small bugs that would appear after its roll out.

You can download the 2.5.1 version here. There is also one security fix that is currently not known by the public, but might in the near future. If you are just interested in securing your install you can download the compromised files directly on their announcement post.

    We all knew this, that there will be version update soon. So I was waiting for it before upgrading to 2.5 because as 2.3.3 is the best and secure-bug free version in 2.3. So I think now we can opt for 2.5.1. 😀

    Finally I can update my blog from 2.3 🙂

    I’m nervous about switching. I’ve just gotten things working smoothly, as my host (dreamhost) has been having some major meltdowns. I’ve never done an upgrade, is it complicated?


  • Daniel Scocco

    Lisa, make sure to use the automatic upgrade plugin and I think you will be fine:


  • Browsers

    I’ve just decided to wait till 2.5.2 🙂

  • Ed Sutherland

    A number of users are reporting problems with the 2.5.1 upgrade. including problems posting, as well as continued inability to add uploaded images to posts using the media tool. Hopefully, an update to the update will appear quickly.

    to me it’s a 100% useless… :/

    OK – I just installed WP Automatic Update – see what happens!
    🙂 Hoping for the best

  • Peter Knight

    Yep! Automatic update worked just fine (second time, when I selected the ‘fully automatic’ mode – it gives you an option between that and doing the ‘five steps’ manually (which for some reason, got stuck). All the plugins except TanTan noodles – too!

    Thank you for the reminder. Take the jump Lisa!

    🙂 Peter

    I have not experienced any problems with 2.5.1 yet, but I will keep you guys updated.

  • Dr. Bardou

    I have just read that in this update version 70 bug fixes were done. Imagine how many bugs were in that last version (2.5)?

  • team ray

    wow having so many bugs is imho kinda of unacceptable

    i mean the amount of money the wordpress team makes you think

    they would hired capable engineeers

  • Daniel Scocco

    @team ray, even Microsoft’s products come to the market with thousands of bugs, and they have as much money as possible available to develop software :).

  • Browsers

    Daniel Scocco,

    Microsoft code is like billions if lines longer 😉

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Browsers, we got talk about ratios then right?

    Even in that case, I think the ratio of capital available for development (C) divided by lines of code (L) of Microsoft is bigger than that of WordPress.

    Microsoft’s C / L > WordPress’ C / L
