After reading this i immediately upgraded to WordPress 2.6. The upgrade itself seemingly was flawless. If you happen to find a bug, please tell me.
BTW.: I switch to doing an svn export of the WP tag from the automattic repository followed by an internal rsync -avz. This reduces the upgrade time to a couple of seconds. Due to the layout of WP (mixing original files and user adaptions in the same directory this also means that there is the chance of stale files at the rsync target directory, perhaps introducing potential security risks.
Wrt. 2.6 I’m especially interested in the revisions and the PressThis functionality as well as the image captions. Right now i’m sharing interesting blog posts in my google shared item feed. I’m definitely not going to do a press this post for every blog post i’m sharing but try to find a middle ground. In preparation for this i added a new category “Fresh from the press“.
Initially i’m going to make the PressThis posts visible at the homepage but will eventually hide them from it, similar to the DailyDeli posts. If don’t know about the DailyDeli posts. These are post that are automatically generated by delicious and cover all my daily bokmarking at delicious. BTW. my delicious account can be found http://del.icio.us/gkamp.
In other news my apologies for not posting more often recently but i had to work on renovating the house and some other stuff i’m working on. Hopefully this will change soon.
