WordPress 3.4.2 Released. What’s in it and how to upgrade?

WordPress 3.4.2 has been launched as a maintenance and security release for all previous versions of WordPress. There are no new features added as it’s a maintenance release. All our themes are already compliant to the new wordpress release as we develop and test against the development versions of wordpress.

You can use the WordPress Auto update feature to upgrade your wordpress.
To upgrade to WordPress 3.4.2, Login to to your Dashboard » Updates and Click The Upgrade Button. It is very important to do the following steps before upgrading your wordpress:

  1. Backup your website files and database
  2. Disable all Plugins
  3. Upgrade your wordpress version to 3.4.2
  4. Upgrade all your plugins to be compliant with the latest version.

Some of the important issues fixed are:

  • Fix some issues with older browsers in the administration area.
  • Fix an issue where a theme may not preview correctly, or its screenshot may not be displayed.
  • Improve plugin compatibility with the visual editor.
  • Address pagination problems with some category permalink structures.
  • Avoid errors with both oEmbed providers and trackbacks.
  • Prevent improperly sized header images from being uploaded.

Version 3.4.2 also fixes a few security issues and contains some security hardening. The vulnerabilities included potential privilege escalation and a bug that affects multisite installs with untrusted users.
