  1. I don’t understand why they released the new version so quickly after the last update 2 months ago.
    I don’t see any changing in this new version. It’s not really necessary to upgrade.

  2. Saw this update Yesterday and the first thing which I did
    was Backup my Db and updated the wordpress. Though wordpress are releasing very quick update.. 😐
