The Drupal.org team recently released version 7.30 for the Drupal core platform.
Drupal 7.30 is a maintenance update only. This is a maintenance update designed to fix several known bugs. Most importantly, however, this update fixes a “serious regression” that was introduced in the Drupal 7.29 update.
Drupal 7.29 was released very quickly in order to address several security vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, the 7.29 release also introduced a major flaw, which “caused[d] files or images attached to taxonomy terms to be deleted when the taxonomy term [was] edited and resaved.”
Drupal 7.30 fixes that nasty regression, and also includes the security fixes for the vulnerabilities that version 7.29 was ostensibly meant to address in the first place.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Drupal core updates. Recently, Drupal versions 7.27 and 6.31 also addressed several critical security vulnerabilities that were fixed by the Drupal Security Team.
