I don’t usually post on Fridays but after monitoring twitter and the WordPress forums for issues with the WordPress 2.8 upgrade, I decided a quick post was needed. And, yes, WordPress 2.8 was released a day late.
I always recommend NOT upgrading the first day a new version of WordPress is released. While WordPress itself is stable there are SO many plugins and themes that can cause issues. And it’s not possible for the WordPress gang to test for every possible configuration out there.
