WordPress 2.1

WordPress v2.1 has been officially released a few days ago and, as you may have noticed, I have upgraded my website. A little tweaking to some of the plugins was necessary though but, hopefully, everything is in place and working fine now. I wonder why all these small issues with the latest wordpress releases or with some of the plugins I use happen now that I have no free time!

Apart from the administration panel changes and the new features for its users, the WordPress developers, as it was expected, have fixed many bugs, which had remained at the “known bug” state in several of the previous major and minor WordPress releases. Lorelle has written a draft list of the changes in functions in the latest WP release. This is a very interesting read, especially if you are a plugin author. Fortunately, most of the WordPress plugins I have written have not been affected by those changes. I say “most of them” because Add-Meta-Tags required some modifications in order to work properly.

So, before upgrading, I would recommend to check the homepages of all of the plugins you use on your blogs, just in case some of them are incompatible with WP 2.1 and need to get fixed.

The new WordPress works just fine now and, in my opinion, is one of the greatest releases.

    I just upgraded today and had to disable ‘Break Out Of Frames’ because when I went to edit a page (not a post) it kept opening what was loaded in the Preview panel.
