Being the WordPress newbie that I am, I was reluctant to perform upgrades to my 2.0.4 version. Not that I don’t know crap about software upgrades, I just didn’t want to go through all the hassles usually encountered in such.
Surprise, surprise. WordPress is the easiest software upgrade yet. I missed a couple of upgrades between 2.0.4 to 2.1 but that did not matter. Just upload and overwrite all files from the new package then go to /wp-admin/upgrade.php.
The only actual feature that I wanted to see was an improvement in database efficiency. I always thought WordPress could be a lot faster. And now it is.
