Fast fixing

“Didn’t we just get 3.8.2?” I mused as the email notifiers came in last night to tell me that 3.8.3 had just arrived. There was, of course, a reason for that:

The “Quick Draft” tool on the dashboard screen was broken in the 3.8.2 update. If you tried to use it, your draft would disappear and it wouldn’t save. While we doubt anyone was writing a novella using this tool, any loss of content is unacceptable to us.

We recognize how much trust you place in us to safeguard your content, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We’re sorry we let you down.

Now what kind of nimrod writes novellas in the WordPress editor?

Oh, right. Never mind.

    I’ve never written ANYTHING in the Quick Draft, but it WOULD have irritated me, had I done so,, and the text had disappeared.

    I suspect this happened to rather a lot of people, and they made their irritation known.

    And now 3.9, which showed up while I was writing last night’s basketball recap.
