WordPress 5.2.2 released

[English]A brief information: An update to WordPress 5.2.2 has been released this night. Its a maintenance update, and one of my blogs has been updated automatically, my multisite blog here have to be updated manually.


The update itself was installed without any issues. However, the current version 7.3.4 of the WordFence plug-in has the problem that this new WordPress version is not recognized. The user gets an update warning in the dashboard. In the WordFence WordPess.com forum there is already this entry, where the problem was reported. I confirmed it, but my comment (guenni) hasn’t been moderated yet. Guess the WordFence plug-in will be updated soon.
