WordPress 4.1.1 is available and fixes 21 bugs. According to Andrew Nacin who published the announcement, 4.1 was a smooth-sailing release and has been downloaded over 14 million times within the last two months. One of the bugs fixed is an issue where a tag and a category with the same name could get muddled and prevent each other from being updated.
Updates are slowly rolling out and if your site is configured to receive automatic updates, it should update within the next 72 hours. If not, visit Dashboard → Updates and click Update Now to manually trigger the update routine.
There are a handful of contributors to this release, but the one that sticks out is Kim Parsell. She helped fix an issue where an old image file needed to be removed from core. Reading the release notes and coming across Kim’s name generates a rush of emotions as I remember the events surrounding New Years day. For those who don’t know, Kim passed away earlier this year. In memory of Kim, The WordPress Foundation has created a traveling scholarship.
I think Nacin speaks for many when he says, “We miss you, Kim.”
