Maintenance updates Maintenance updates

Shortly after WordPress 5.3.1 was released, a couple of high severity Trac tickets were opened. The Core team scheduled this quick maintenance release to resolve these issues.

Main issues addressed in 5.3.2:

  • Date/Time: Ensure that get_feed_build_date() correctly handles a modified post object with invalid date.
  • Uploads: Fix file name collision in wp_unique_filename() when uploading a file with upper case extension on non case-sensitive file systems.
  • Media: Fix PHP warnings in wp_unique_filename() when the destination directory is unreadable.
  • Administration: Fix the colors in all color schemes for buttons with the .active class.
  • Tests/build tools: In wp_insert_post(), when checking the post date to set future or publish status, use a proper delta comparison.

For more information,?browse the full list of changes on Trac?or check out the?version 5.3.2 HelpHub documentation page.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to WordPress 5.3.2:
