WordPress 3.0.2

I just upgraded to WordPress version 3.0.2, being billed as a mandatory update for all versions (including those still running WordPress 2.x) to solve an issue that allows an author to elevate to an administrative user. Even if you have a single-author blog (like this one), there are other security enhancements and fixes that make this upgrade worthwhile. I completed it in about 30 seconds, and everything still seems to be working. If you are running a 2.x version of WordPress still, I think it’s time to upgrade — 3.0 has been very stable, and most plugins are now working with it.
