b2evolution 2.4.5 "Monument Valley" has been released!
In a nutshell: 3 months worth of bug fixes, a new skin (Glossy blue), additional skin template and widget params, enhanced display speed in backoffice and better URL handling of tag pages.
Also note that the new download page now includes links to download quick upgrade patches if you are already running 2.4.1 or 2.4.2. You have to scroll down though, I figured we would not want to have those displayed too high which might be confusing new users.
Upgrading from a previous 2.x version will only take you a couple of minutes. Skins from any previous 2.x version are compatible. Plugins from any 1.10.x or previous 2.x version are compatible. Version 3.0 will be an alpha release and will not be stable for a couple of months. We highly recommend you upgrade to 2.4.5. This guarantees your site is as secure as possibly be.
This version will also install a demo photoblog (as blog #4) for first time installers. If you already have b2evo running but would like to see it, check out the demo server.
