WordPress 2.7: Automatic Upgrade in Core!

No Responses · August 11, 2008

Accord­ing to Word­Press devel­oper Ryan Boren, the most requested Word­Press fea­ture is ten­ta­tively slated for the as-yet unsched­uled 2.7 release.

This already exists in the form of a third-party plu­gin, which I’ve actu­ally used suc­cess­fully before on another blog. I’ve always found upgrad­ing man­u­ally to be easy and problem-free, though incred­i­bly tedious. Because I don’t use many plu­g­ins or alter any core Word­Press files, I think automat­ing the process will be a safe option for me, one that I’ll trust more in the hands of the core devel­op­ment team. Still, I’m sure I’ll wait till it’s been thor­oughly tested in a cou­ple ver­sions before using it on this site.
