"Your site has updated to WordPress 4.2.2‏"

This morning I received a number of emails from WordPress sites that I manage telling me that they had automatically updated to WordPress 4.2.2.

This is a security update that happened in the background without me having to do anything.

This is a positive sign of the growing maturity of the WordPress ecosystem. Security updates are inevitable, making those updates seamless to users and administrators is very welcome. It also speeds up the rate of deployment massively thus reducing the exposure of a security problem.

I could, of course, choose to move away from self-hosting WordPress and to use the cloud delivered WordPress.com, but I quite like the fun.
