Impending WordPress Software Upgrade

We need to stay current with the WordPress blogging software – both for security and to provide the latest-and-greatest features.

After the hardware upgrade of 3/7/2009 is a week or two old, we’ve got an upgrade to wordpress 2.6.5 waiting in the wings.  WordPress 2.6.5 is essentially identical to what we’re running now and shouldn’t cause any problems or confusion on a technical or user interface level.

However, a significant new update to wordpress has been released – WordPress 2.7.

WordPress 2.7 offers a streamlined management interface that – generally – has been well received. Here’s a good overview of the changes. Here’s another one.

We don’t really have a choice – we have to upgrade sooner rather than later. We wanted to make you aware now of the upcoming change, because soon how you manage your blog will look completely different. Probably better, but definitely different.
