Version 2.6.1 is Now Available

We are very pleased to announce that WordPress for iOS Version 2.6.1 is now available in the App Store. This release addresses issues many of our users reported with Version 2.6.

Like always, we owe a great deal of thanks and credit to the WordPress community for providing us with such amazing feedback. Your comments, forum posts, and tickets helped us address the issues as quickly as possible. Without your help, this update would likely have been delayed another week as we worked to track down and reproduce the issues.

While there are a ton of new features and enhancements in this version, the one we’re most excited about is Video. Because upload limits can vary greatly from host to host and blog to blog, we wanted to make sure to give you our recommended settings for users who would like to use this new feature. If you’re running WordPress 2.9.2 or later please be sure to add the following lines to your root .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 128M
php_value upload_max_filesize 128M
php_value post_max_size 128M
php_value max_execution_time 120

You may need to adjust these numbers depending on the size of the video you’re trying to upload. If you need help, be sure to check out the WordPress for iOS Forums.

Again, we’re grateful for all of the feedback we’ve received from our users, and we intend to expand our Beta Team even further in the future to ensure we get an appropriate range of device and blog combinations moving forward. We hope that our continued efforts to expand testing before each new release will result in more bug-free updates in the future.

Thank you for using WordPress for iOS!
