WordPress 2.7

I upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.7 tonight. It took me literally 3 minutes, and that includes downloading the backup files. I was using the WordPress Automatic Updater plugin, but apparently this is the last time I’ll need that because the functionality has been rolled into WordPress itself. This is all to the good. It’s not like WordPress upgrades were ever that burdensome but being able to do this all with a click or three really gets rid of all the procrastination possibilities, which is really helpful when security fixes come out.

I’ve only had 20 minutes of run time with version 2.7 but so far I’m liking it.

    I have been procrastinating because of some problems I had with my last upgrade. I am glad to see that WordPress built in the ability to upgrade in the future. Nice feature.

    I ran into the same issue that Nick had. My updater thinks its the latest version had to do a manual upgrade. would have been nice to upgrade wordpress with just one click
