Development Blog › WordPress 2.1 Ella: “On behalf of the WordPress.org community of commiters, contributers, and volunteers, I’m very proud to announce the immediate availability of WordPress 2.1 “Ella”, named for jazz vocalist Ella Fitzgerald. Here’s a sampling of what’s in the new version:”
Attempting to update to version 2.0.7, I noted that the links go to the brand-new (16 hours as I write this) version 2.1 and there may be significant issues with less-well-know plugins. If plugins are an important part of your blog, check out their list of compatible plugins first, then consider if now is a good time to upgrade. The downside I fear, though, is that the security flaws originally fixed with 2.0.7 may be getting exploited out in the wild. Darned if you do and darned if you don’t.
UPDATE: All looks fine here. My plugins appear to be working. Upgrade instructions (with lots of backups) worked just fine. If anyone notices problems, please don’t hesitate to add a comment below.
