WordPress 2.5 – Plugin Compatibility

Yesterday, I upgraded WordPress to the latest version 2.5, which I liked much! For the upgrade I used a WordPress updater script I had written some months ago, which, by the way, still remains unreleased due to lack of time to prepare a stable release… Anyway, the script has worked quite well and the transition to the new WP version has been exceptionally smooth. I won’t go into much detail about the improvements of the new WordPress release. For such details please read the official announcement on the WordPress development blog. Despite the numerous improvements, the database schema hasn’t changed that much, so most existent plugins should work just fine. As far as the plugins that have been created and published by G-Loaded/CodeTRAX are concerned, all of them seem to work flawlessly in version 2.5. In case you run into trouble, please report the issue ASAP. Thanks.

PS: An issue with the feeds always delivering full-text has been corrected with the More-Feed-Excerpt plugin.
