Major WordPress Update - 4.9 - themes
#1
Today when I accessed my WordPress site on my VPS there were 9 updates waiting for me, which in its own right signifies a major WordPress update. We get these updates regularly, but this one seems to be a bigger one. It would probably be a good idea to update your sites if you're not on automatic updates.  All of my themes needed to be updated, so for me that means that the WP update to 4.9 is design focused.  It's supposed to make the customizer tool and widgets more feature rich. 

By definition of course if there isn't an update for your theme, then you need to check whether the developer of your theme is still interested in the theme.  If not, it would probably be a good idea to find out if the theme has been made redundant or nulled - if yes to the latter the theme can turn into a security risk.

Haha .... very wise indeed! 

I've been working with my blog tonight for a couple of hours and looks as though everything is OK.  Then again, my themes are usually very simple and uncomplicated - maybe a little bit boring - haven't had an explosion yet. Tongueout

Update to WP 4.9.1. It fixes four major security issues:
  •     Use a properly generated hash for the newbloguser key instead of a determinate substring.
  •     Add escaping to the language attributes used on html elements.
  •     Ensure the attributes of enclosures are correctly escaped in RSS and Atom feeds.
  •     Remove the ability to upload JavaScript files for users who do not have the unfiltered_html capability.
