As most of you already know WordPress version 2.7, codenamed Coltrane, was released on Thursday. I installed it yesterday spending approximately 15 minutes doing my usual upgrade routine. In short that’s deactivating plugins, complete DB backup, delete old files, upload new files and reactivating the plugins.
Besides the giant improvement on the admin section I was also happy to see that all plugins were working fine. So for those of you that haven’t updated yet – do it!
The WordPress theme has also released a visual introduction to what 2.7 is:
As always I would really appreciate feedback should you notice anything out of the ordinary on this blog or in 2.7 in general. Thanks 🙂
Last, but certainly not least, this may be the last time you ever have to manually upgrade WordPress again. The WP theme have heard how tired you were of doing upgrades for yourself and your friends, so now WordPress includes a built-in upgrade that will automatically notify you of new releases, and when you’re ready it will download them, install them, and upgrade your blog with a single click. How great is that!!!
