Upgrade to 2.6.5 went fine, new feature added. . .
So the upgrade to 2.6.5 appears to have gone off without a hitch. We’ll be working on the upgrade to 2.7.1 today, with a planned rollout at 4pm.
I’ve added a new feature: apparently WordPress does not defaultly adjust for daylight savings time. I’ve added the “timezone” plugin to let you set your timezone to a city near you, wordpress will then automatically adjust for daylight savings time where appropriate.
More details here:
You can set your timezone under “settings” -> “timezone”.
