WordPress 3.3.1 Fixes Security Exploit

WordPress 3.3.1 was released last night and it addresses an important security issue discovered in WordPress 3.3. Along with the security fix, the release also fixes 15 issues that are outlined here. After I upgraded the Tavern website, I was a bit confused to see a number of things that were listed under the What’s New section. Most of the features outlined were introduced in WordPress 3.3, not 3.3.1.

WordPress 3.3.1 Whats New

When questioning this move on Twitter, Evansolomon responded with the following:

evansolomon @wptavern Full feature list is more useful for anyone using < 3.3. As 3.3 is still very new, good case that less accurate = more useful here

I guess that makes sense but it still throws me for a loop a little bit because it looks like those features were added with 3.3.1, not with 3.3. So the question I have for you is, do you think the What’s New section should be strict in only listing what’s new with that specific version or should other features from previous versions be shown as well?
