The Debian package of WordPress version 3.9.1 was uploaded to the ftp master recently. While the update was pretty simple, the upload took a lot more doing. I’m not sure why the Debian ftp-master server didn’t like me, but it was so slow. Strangely, even dcut uploads were slow and they are only a few lines of text.
Apologies for the delay too, I’m not sure why I didn’t notice the update from 3.9 to 3.9.1 but there you go.
The other change is that the package uses the system CA certificates rather than the ones pre-shipped with wordpress. This is done so that if the administrator makes decisions on what certificates to trust, then the wordpress client http libraries will follow that decision.
