[WordPress News] WordPress 3.1 Released Candidate 2

WordPress team released WordPress 3.1 RC2 (Release Candidate 2) as a New Year present and it is available for download to all users and developers. RC stands for “Rlease Candidate” which means it is an indication that product is ready for final launch. WordPress team is in no mood of celebrating holidays because on Christmas they released WordPress 3.1 RC1 and on before New Year they released a major security update and those who are unable to update to latest version got hacked and many blogs already hacked due to this upgrade.
