I’ve just upgraded the WordPress software to the latest version (2.12), so I’d appreciate any feedback as to anything wrong/missing/not working.
I’ve decided to update the software fairly regularly, but not be right on the bleeding edge. We were on version 126.96.36.199 for a long time but useful plug-ins for WordPress 2 wouldn’t work, and the step-change when I did upgrade was rather large.
Fortunately I didn’t upgrade to version 2.11, which had been compromised by a hacker who had put in remote exploits to the source code. I intend to let new versions bed-in (ie let others spot the bugs) before I install them.
I’d also like to express my appreciation for the developers of WordPress, who have put a lot of time and effort into making WordPress the best blogging software out there.
