I’m losing count of the number of software upgrades that I have done for WordPress. I can’t even remember the very first version that I had downloaded and installed in my webspace and started this blog upon. Probably 1.6 or 1.7 something. I dunno.
Since then WordPress has gone leaps and bounds and they kept knocking the versions outta the ball park. Until this late afternoon I was using version 2.8.6 which was done a few months ago. If I am not mistaken, they’ve had 3 more releases since then 2.8.7 and then 2.9 and 2.9.1 before this puppy came out on Feb 15th. Today was as good a time as any to check it out and I did a quick upgrade and………I can’t make out any visible differences!
Everything looks about the same. I’m told that the only difference between v 2.9.1 and 2.9.2 is a problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors. WordPress alerts us to upgrade to 2.9.2 if we have untrusted users signed up onto the blog and have sensitive posts in the trash. But no differences that I can make out from 2.8.6 & 2.9.2.
Oh well, I hope version 3.0 is going to be well worth the wait.
