Release notes Maintenance and security release of the Drupal 7 series.
No changes have been made to the .htaccess, web.config, robots.txt or default settings.php files in this release, so upgrading custom versions of those files is not necessary.
On sites with a very large number of unpublished nodes in the database, the Taxonomy module update function introduced in this release may take a very long time to run and consume an excessive amount of memory. A fix is available in this issue and will be included in the next bug fix release of Drupal core. Sites which need the fix sooner can apply the patch from that issue to their Drupal 7.26 sites.
Major changes since 7.25:
The database schema of the OpenID module's "openid_association" table has changed in this release (the "idp_endpoint_uri" column is now the primary key, rather than the "assoc_handle" column). During the update all existing entries in this table will be removed, but the table only stores temporary data and therefore the change is not expected to affect site operation or OpenID logins.
A new, optional $form_state['programmed_bypass_access_check'] element has been added to the form API, for use with drupal_form_submit(). If this is provided and set to FALSE, drupal_form_submit() will perform the normal form access checks against the current user while submitting the form, rather than bypassing them like it normally does for programmatic form submissions. Any code which passes untrusted data (provided by the current user) to drupal_form_submit() is recommended to use this parameter for security reasons.
