Last night I took the plunge and upgraded to WordPress 2.5, and so far, everything has been working as expected.
The install took about 5 minutes (not accounting for the back-up time) and went without a hitch. All of my plug-ins seem to be chugging along fine, and I haven’t noticed any drastic changes to the front of the scenes look of the site.
Behind the scenes is where most of WP 2.5’s changes occurred though, so I guess that’s to be expected. The whole interface was revamped, and changes include:
- Multi-file uploading
- One-click plugin upgrades
- Built-in galleries
- Customizable dashboard
- Salted passwords and cookie encryption
- Media library
- A WYSIWYG that doesn’t mess with your code
- Concurrent post editing protection
- Full-screen writing
- Search that covers posts and pages
Let me know if you see anything go wonky in the next few days, but if you’re looking to make the switch/upgrade to WordPress 2.5, I give it two thumbs up.
