WordPress 2.7.1 Released!

Logged into my WordPress Dashboard today and saw that there was a new version of WordPress out. I usually wait to see if there are any new bugs introduced with a new version, but I was curious to try the new automatic upgrade process that was introduced in WP v2.7. And it works as promised, albeit a little slower than I expected. Upgrading this site took between 4-5 minutes.. I’d imagine that some of my larger blogs would take even longer.

Still, for people like me who manage 50+ WP blogs, the automatic upgrade is a godsend.. Fantastico worked well enough, but this saves me a few extra steps. 🙂

    Yeah, I just saw that too.

    BTW, do you really go through 50+ site every day man? Phew….. Mind posting some of the URLs?

  3. Did anybody upgrade and more importantly test the new Automatic Upgrade features from the previous version?

    I am still sitting on 2.5.1.

      I used the Automatic Upgrade to move from v2.7 to v2.7.1, and it went off without a hitch. If you’re still on 2.5.1, you really should consider manually updating to 2.7.1 – Not just for the Automatic Upgrade features, but for all the other changes/bug fixes/enhancements that they’ve made since then.
