WordPress recently announced a small update (version 3.0.4) for a security issue. We have just upgraded to this version in test today.
We are also including in this upgrade a new feature for you! A new plugin called FeedWordPress is available for your use. FeedWordPress allows you to an Atom/RSS feed to syndicate it on your blog. One of the interesting use cases for the plugin is to allow courses that employ multiple blogs to be able to have one overall blog that syndicates them. Alternatively course blogs can continue to use one blog with different authors, categories and tags.
We will upgrade the production instance of blogs.brandeis.edu on Monday, January 10th at 10:30AM EST.
