Weekly WordPress News: WP Site Care Origin Story, #WPDrama, WordPress Security Update

WordPress just shipped version 4.2.3 which is a security release fixing a cross-site scripting vulnerability so make sure you are up to date on all your sites.

Epic and well written post by Brian at Post Status where he delves deeply into the latest #wpdrama between Matt Mullenweg and Chris Pearson, Thesis, Autommatic and WordPress. He explains the history of animosity between the two and delves into the deeper issues regarding WordPress and the GPL and Chris’ patent application, take a while to read through it all.

Sorry, but another drama related post which I found quite interesting to read was James Farmer’s “Persona Non Grata – 10 Years as a WordPress Entrepreneur“. As you can see from his post, his personality seems to rub people up the wrong way, he has made some mistakes in the past and his language and treatment of bloggers is just wrong and for that, he has paid a price which has harmed his business and basically ostracized his company from the WordPress community.

Finally, a nice post by Ryan Sullivan at WP Site Care where he shares his origin story of creating the business from a spare room in house.

Big news week today – lots of interesting posts to check out. Enjoy!
