WordPress has released version 2.5.1 of the blogging software. The new version, which comes nearly a month after the initial release fixes a slew of performance and interface bugs, but also includes a very important security update. It is highly reccommended that all WordPress 2.5 users update their installations as soon as possible, especially if you allow open-registration (for user comments or for multi-author blogs).
In addition to the aforementioned security patch, 2.5.1 contains a number of fixes to issues that have plagued some WordPress users for the last couple of weeks.
The highlights include

  • Improvements to the Media Uploader
  • Performance tweaks for the Dashboard and the Write and Comments pages
  • TinyMCE has been updated
  • Layout fixes for IE users

Download the latest version of WordPress from their download site and update your installations accordingly.
