WordPress 2.6.5 is Released

WordPress jumped from version 2.6.3 to 2.6.5. Version 2.6.4 does not exist because there was a fake version of it. The WordPress 2.6.5 update is pretty easy. We only have 5 files to replace:

  1. /wp-includes/feed.php
  2. /wp-includes/version.php

  4. /xmlrpc.php
  5. /wp-admin/users.php
