Imagine the title being said in a Real-Time Strategy game type announcer voice.
I don’t generally like upgrading stuff unless I have to–my post about Windows Movie Maker is an excellent example of this, as I should really just up and get another computer for other reasons not mentioned here besides the WMM crash–but when my webhost tells me “Hey, you’ve got some potentially vulnerable scripts on your site, you may want to upgrade,” I figure it’s a good idea to listen. As such, the back end of the site is now running WordPress 2.5, upgraded from my previous 2.3.3.
The interface is completely different. I’m not sure I like it yet, though I’ll admit that this is as much because I hate change as it is a fault with the new design itself. I will say that one thing I really like is the automatic plugin installation. Suffice to say that the process of upgrading my plugins was a bit time consuming before, but now I just click “upgrade automatically” and boom. Done. Sweet.
Also, you’ll note that for the second time, I’ve managed to upgrade things on my end without destroying my database. Woo!
