WordPress 3.5.1 has been released. This is both a security and maintenance release, fixing 37 bugs.

In particular, this release fixes a bug which could cause HTML elements to be unexpectedly removed by the Editor, fixes a bug which caused HTML elements to be unexpectedly removed from scheduled posts, provides workarounds for certain misconfigurations which could prevent JavaScript from loading in the Dashboard, and fixes three cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and one server-side request forgery vulnerability.

If you have trouble automatically updating to WordPress 3.5.1, you may be on an IIS server and will need to follow these instructions.

This is a security release, so it is recommended for all users. If you run into trouble with WordPress 3.5.1, stop by the master list of known issues and post to the support forums if your problem isn’t covered there.

    Updated, but facing issue with miss scheduling.. Instaled Fix misschedule but it’s a temporary solution… Hopefully we get another update soon…

    I’m glad they updated it. I had not had those specific HTML problems, but a friend of mine did. Hopefully, it will really be fixed.

    When I saw “37 bugs”, I got worried but when I saw the list of bugs, thankfully, nothing was targeting my blog. I have also updated my blog.

    Glad I am using WordPress.com and don’t have to worry about manual updates. I would update and then Godaddy would redo the update…

    Just updated and noticed a line about the dashboard looking smoother….looks exactly the same on my end. Am I missing something? (not really tech related but reading the post just reminded me)

      No changes were made to the UI or UX of the Dashboard, it was just made to actually work properly under certain misconfigured servers. You would have only noticed if you were on one of the misconfigured servers, at which point it would have been horribly broken in WordPress 3.5 and magically fixed in WordPress 3.5.1. :)

        ah, right on. No idea what the heck I was lookin’ at then. The internet as a whole is just starting to run together at this point.

    I have not updated until after I fully understand how blogs will be affected. Having problems in the past that wasted time that I don’t have trying to back out of a release can drive you nuts. Thanks for everyones input.

    Glad to see this has rolled out – although there have been reports of java-script based plugins breaking if not updated to match, so be sure to update all at once!

    Before you update your WordPress to 3.5.1 make sure you to take entire backup. The major problem encountered with many users during the upgrade is a visual editor does not work correctly. It is also possible to monitor a disabling of java script for the menus.

    In addition admin plugin “BAW” (Better Color Themes) has some compatibility issues with WordPress 3.5.1. Indeed, the background is transparent for sub-menus, which can be annoying.

    I’ve just updated my blog with no troubles. Great they’ve fixed videos in scheduled posts. This wa really annoying.

    Upgraded the site to 3.5.1. without any issue except for a problem with one of the menus. I think though that this was a problem with the Genesis child theme we’re using rather than a 3.5.1 upgrade issue.

    Uploading to host worked fine but file downloaded for local use won’t unzip.

    Clicking the zip file produces wordpress-3.5.1.zip.cpgz and clicking that produces another wordpress-3.5.1zip. Over and over. No wp files are ever liberated. Even the extractor failed.

    I updated mine without any issues. I heard of a few blogs being hacked that were not updated, so I thought I better update ASAP. I generally wait a few days before updating so that any plugins are updated, etc… but having hearing of sites getting hacked, I’m going to start updating right away.

    Updated and working fine for me, and till now didn’t get any problem related to the new update.

    No major issues with the upgrade to 3.5.1 but a word of caution to those using the ComicPress theme with WordPress. Some of the ways 3.5.0 and above handle the feed filters conflict with the ComicPress theme functions. You will need to make some modifications to the functions in order to view the comic images in the feed.

    Updated and the themes are now broken. Missing stylesheets. Trying to find a solution.

  18. Jason (2 comments.) says:

    I was able to fix the broken theme issue buy going into the FTP and deleting the theme and then just re-installing it. Everything worked fine and nothing was missing.

    If you look in the FTP at the theme folder you will probably see that the folder is mostly empty. Not sure where it all went but that is why it is not working.

    So really a simple fix in the end.

    Had a few issues going to 3.5, but everything seems to have settled down with 3.5.1.

    Some admin pages do not load or load completely. Reloading the page loads it correctly. Is this a WordPress issue ?
