Download WordPress 2.0.6 RC1 here:


Changes from 2.0.6 beta 1:

- i18n fixes
- Quicktags now activated for Safari (requires very recent version of  
Safari 2)
- global MySQL query filter (called "query"), which allows for very  
powerful plugins
- fix for funky expand/contract behavior of the bigger DBX boxes  
(trackbacks, postmeta) in Firefox
- Akismet plugin optimizes the comment database more infrequently  
(doesn't need to happen that often)

We've been having all positive feedback regarding the wp_redirect()  
Server 500 error that some people were getting with WP 2.0.5  Big  
kudos and thanks to everyone who helped me with that one, especially  
Ben Masters who graciously granted me access to his server for testing.

Go ahead and bang on this release candidate over the weekend and  
report back here.  As always, we're looking for a diverse bunch of  
testers, so I'm particularly interested in feedback from people  
running PHP 5.2, PHP via FastCGI, IIS, Apache on Windows, etc.   
Although the 2.0.x branch will continue to be maintained well into  
the future, 2.0.6 is likely going to be the last release before WP  
2.1 launches, so lets make it a good one!

One other note:  there is a security patch that will be going into  
2.0.6 final that is NOT in this release candidate (so as to not give  
troublemakers a head start).  So be sure to download the final  
version when it comes out.
