Toughen Up WordPress! [4.1.2 is out]

By Izumi Mitsui

WordPress 4.1.2 has been released as of 21/04/15.
It’s an update heavily focused on security features of the core platform, not since version 4.0.1 has WordPress seen so much armour added to the security front.

Deemed ‘critical’ it is recommended that all websites be updated to the latest version to maximise security and ensure optimal performance.

“This is a critical security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.”

Why is Benny good for me?

Since relevant content is a crucial factor with organic SEO, WordPress has done a great job with Benny by allowing you (as the website admin) more effortless control over your content.

Should I update to Benny?

Our best recommendation is you contact your web developer to get advice.

As with any other updates, there’s a chance it could result in unexpected behaviour or causing the site to break. Please take precaution before updating the platform yourself.

Do I have to update?

The short answer is no, however there are many reasons why you should keep your platform updated at all times. If you’d like more information on this topic please let us know.
