Wow that was fast! It seems like 2.8.2 was last night’s dinner. WordPress 2.8.3 addresses privilege escalation issues. These issues were overlooked in previous versions, but thanks to the WordPress community the remaining issues are fixed in 2.8.3. Since this is a security release, upgrading is highly recommended.
Other issues fixed in WordPress 2.8.3
Slow indexing issues in WordPress 2.8 addressed in 2.8.3 – Instead of notifying ping services every time a post is published or edited, pings are now sent once every hour, at the most. Apparently this will be fixed in WordPress 2.8.3.
