Do you upgrade as soon as a new version of WordPress comes out? Do you wait a little while to make sure all the kinks are worked out? Or are you still running a much older version like 2.0 and refuse to upgrade?
I’m in the middle on this one. I like to upgrade but I am cautious and careful about it. First, I like to see what happens. Are as many bugs introduced as were corrected? Are people reporting problems with the upgrade? I usually wait until the .1 update before upgrading. Before upgrading, however, I do a little bit of research. I check to see if my must have plugins are compatible with the upgrade as plugins are frequently the reason why an upgrade goes awry. If certain plugins aren’t compatible, I might wait or I will look for an alternative. Sometimes I will decide that I no longer need the plugin.
