WordPress 4.9.1

WordPress 4.9.1 has Been Released

WordPress 4.9.1, the first update since the big WordPress 4.9 release, is here. It is a security and maintenance release created to harden security and implement fixes found in the previous version.

The update includes:

  • A properly generated hash can be generated for the new bloguser key as opposed to a determinate substring
  • Escaping has been added to the language attributes used on html elements
  • Attributes of enclosures are correctly escaped in RSS and Atom feeds.
  • Users who don’t have the unfiltered_html capability no longer have the ability to upload JavaScript files
  • Issues relating to the caching of theme template files have been fixed
  • The MediaElement JavaScript error that prevented users of certain languages from uploading media files has been fixed
  • Windows based server users are now able to edit theme and plugin files.

Despite these fixes being minor they were impactful enough to warrant a new WordPress release.
