Upgrade your WordPress!!

WordPress 2.3 “Dexter” has been released, and it’s cool, so upgrade NOW. If you’ve upgraded ad you use my Robots Meta plugin, you’ll see two new functions: “Enforce a trailing slash on all category and tag URL’s” and “noindex the comment RSS feeds”. Especially the second one is a reason to upgrade, as it allows noindexing of just your comment feeds.

    wordpress always releases an upgrade every now and then.
    is there any critical update to the old version or upgrading is just optional.
    Upgrading wordpress is very time consuming.

    Ashish: no it’s not if you use Subversion to maintain your WordPress installation:

    hey joost de valk,
    thanks for the link and info.it looks fine upgrading from subversion but what about the plugins which i have currently on my blogs.
    Is there a way to know whether the plugin is compatible with new upgraded wordpress or not, without going to each and every plugin’s homepage.

    Nope, not currently. From 2.3 onwards, WordPress will automatically show you which plugins have updates though.

    I found this plugin which does a check on your plugins for upgrading.

    I am holding off as it seems many of the plugins I rely on are not 2.3 ready. I wish I had a way to run a live duplicate blog and upgrade that to test it.
