  1. FYI: It's up to 2.62 now. I have no idea what is critical besides the author.pm file, but the changelog made it seem like upgrading was a "good thing." Everything seems to be working on my site.

  2. I noticed this too. I'm still at 2.51, maybe I'll hold off on upgrading for a little while longer. I also noticed they feel a beta might be prudent for future versions. Another security issue was introduced with 2.61.
