WordPress for iPhone/iPad 2.6.2 Available: Are You Brave Enough to See if its Bugs Have Been Stomped?

WordPress for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad) has been broken for what seems like a long time now. It started with the 2.6.0 release and continued with 2.6.1. The 2.6.2 update was submitted to Apple in late October and is now available in the App Store.

WordPress for iOS 2.6.2 Submitted: Many Fixes for Buggy 2.6.0 & 2.6.1 Releases (ThinkMobile, Oct. 28)

Version 2.6.2 Is Now Available (WordPress for iOS blog)

WordPress 2.6.2 (iTunes App Store)

This release purports to fix a lot:

Fix for landscape orientation issue when editing posts.
Fix for incorrect date/time on publish.
Fix for sync issues when viewing posts.
Fix for problems connecting to WordPress.org blogs using HTTP Auth.
Fix for crash during Autosave check after publish.
Fix for intermittent failures when uploading media.
Fix for crash when editing WordPress.org blog settings.
Improved HTML output for media uploads.
Improved handling of XML-RPC endpoints for WordPress.org blogs.
Improved UX when adding WordPress.org blogs.
Added in-app crash reporting system.
Added option to use HTML 4 tags when embedding video in a post.

Given the recent bad experiences I’ve had with the last two WordPress for iOS updates, I think I’ll wait a few days to let other people have a chance to crash and burn before I test it out myself.
