- Advertise the Atom 1.0 feed in the default theme.
- Atom API uses the newer WP authentication functions.
- Fix for an object caching bug in plugin updates.
- If you are an IIS or i18n user, we’ve fixed a few annoying bugs that might be bothering you depending on your hosting setup. If you are an IE user who uses Press This, we fixed some image insertion problems for you.

And they are still in having another line of version up 2.7 with a new line of improvements. Why not make it in version numbering with all of this improvement, like the features on 2.6 added to 2.2 version? Keeps me wondering sometimes whether to upgrade or not unless it is a security update.
