  • Fix some issues with older browsers in the administration area.
  • Fix an issue where a theme may not preview correctly, or its screenshot may not be displayed.
  • Improve plugin compatibility with the visual editor.
  • Address pagination problems with some category permalink structures.
  • Avoid errors with both oEmbed providers and trackbacks.
  • Prevent improperly sized header images from being uploaded.
