Word 2007 can't retrieve categories

After upgrading to Wordpress 2.7, Microsoft Word 2007 is not able to retrieve categories from the server. When in Word, click Insert Category and authenticate to your WP installation. The attempt will appear to be successful, but the Categories drop down box in Word is empty.

This was probably caused by a change we made in the 2.7 release for the metaWeblog.getCategories method. We've adjusted that change in the 2.7 branch because of concerns that clients like this would break. Try the lastest version of the xmlrpc.php file for the 2.7 branch:


that should fix the problem. This fix will be part of 2.7.1 when it comes out.
