WordPress 4.2 was released tonight, and it’s another solid release from the team. It includes a new PressThis bookmarklet, better (but not automatic) plugin updates, support for more character sets, and some other minor additions. I’ve been using the 4.2 branch for some time, and it’s stable enough for me. Also, rest assured that the security patch from 4.1.2 is in 4.2 as well, so there’s no reason to hold out on this update.
