    There's a security fix for wordpress that was just released yesterday - 2.8.3. Sorry if it's been posted, but i searched and didn't see mention of it anywhere. I just got done updating 6 of my blogs and had no problems.

    They're kind of vague on what it was, so i suspect that it was important.

    2.7.1 is working fine for me too. Do I have to worry about the 2.8.x security fixes because I have an old version ?

    I'm sticking to 2.7.1 until 2.8 is solid.. and from what I've seen that may be awhile. :)
