I was wrong! Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Yes, there’s a new WordPress version. BUT those geeks geekier than I have advised to wait a week before upgrading! Genesis is good to go (the themes we build on) but some plugin authors are having trouble making their code comply with the new version. Lets give them a grace period, k?
The new version of WordPress was dropped today. And it is entirely safe to upgrade NOW. If of course, you have a backup of your site. For everyone on DSWP hosting and/or Genesis themes, I am confident that you wont have any problems. For everyone else – this version has been tested by thousands of people already so waiting for “the .1 version” isn’t necessary.
The best part – the new media uploader! Its a Christmas Present for Bloggers!
