It figures, I just get everything up to WordPress 2.8.1 and the next day a new version gets released. WordPress 2.8.2 fixes a XSS security vulnerability. The good news is that it was quick easy to update my WordPress installations since they are all now maintained using svn. There were only 8 changed files which made the update quick. Certainly a lot easier than downloading, extracting and copying the entire installation.
The following command upgraded WordPress when it was run from the WordPress installation directory:
svn sw http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/2.8.2/ .
