It’s upgrade time again!
Last week WP 2.0.3 was released (just in time to delay this report!), and included some very minor changes.
So the question is, is it worth an upgrade?
For the first time since the code base moved to version 2, I’d have to say yes.
Although the security issues are significant, they likely won’t affect many (I sure hope I’m not proven wrong saying that!), but the code certainly seems more stable.
For example, I have been patching the previous versions of v2 code to get it to work on my local Windows machine for testing. Usually, the WordPress cache was corrupted by Windows linefeed and return combinations (because WordPress is run most often on Linux/Unix servers, and they use a single newline, the two characters instead of one was enough to jam the cache system in some cases).
However, this version worked immediately, and flawlessly – so much so it wasn’t until several hours later I realized it’s the first version 2 that didn’t cause me grief during installation.
Now with that kind of ease of setup, I finally feel the bugs have been ironed out, and I’m anticipating my migration of all my older blogs to v2, and having my WordPress ‘world’ homogeneous.
Still, I’ll be sorry to see 1.5.2 go!
