Software updates: Ruby on Rails, phpMyAdmin, WordPress
We’ve updated several things on our servers today:
- Ruby on Rails was updated from version 1.2.3 to 1.2.6. (If you use Rails on your site, our page explaining how to freeze Rails explains how you can get total control of Rails updates.)
- phpMyAdmin was updated from version 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
- The WordPress software that runs this blog was updated to version 2.3.1. That doesn’t directly affect our customers — but if you’ve installed your own version of WordPress on your own site, this is a good reminder to update it: some older versions have security vulnerabilities. (We found that the update from 2.2.X to 2.3.1 was painless.)
