WordPress 4.1.1 is now available. This maintenance release fixes 21 bugs in version 4.1.
Some of you may have been waiting to update to the latest version until now, but there just wasn’t much to address. WordPress 4.1 was a smooth-sailing release and has seen more than 14 million downloads in the last two months.
For a full list of changes, consult the list of tickets and the changelog. We fixed one annoying issue where a tag and a category with the same name could get muddled and prevent each other from being updated.
If you are one of the millions already running WordPress 4.1 and your site, we’ve started rolling out automatic background updates for 4.1.1 for sites that support them. Otherwise, download WordPress 4.1.1 or visit Dashboard → Updates and simply click “Update Now.”
Thanks to everyone who contributed to 4.1.1: Andrea Fercia, Boone Gorges, ChriCo, Dion Hulse, David Herrera, Drew Jaynes, Takuro Hishikawa, Thorsten Frommen, Iseulde, John Blackbourn, Aaron Jorbin, mattyrob, Konstantin Obenland, Dominik Schilling, Sergey Biryukov, sippis, tmatsuur, Marin Atanasov, Derek Herman, and Weston Ruter.
It is with both great honor and sadness we also recognize Kim Parsell as a contributor to this release and a truly beloved member of the community until her untimely passing in December. The project is working to establish a conference travel scholarship in her memory. We miss you, Kim.
