Apparently coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. has seen to elect me, so I’ll be happy to hang with you all for the next few months.

Today, WordPress 3.6.1 was released mostly on schedule, closing up a few nagging security issues and bugs, which you can read about on the codex.

In part due to the release, our chat this week was a touch short.  So, instead of a synopsis, I’ll quote the @nacin:

2:08 PDT
We need to bring down the ticket counts. Highest priority: 50% of all tickets need to be fixed or punted in the next week.
3.6.1 is out.
