    Just a quick question, are your plugins still working properly after the upgrade? I mean everytime they release a new wordpress version, I always wait for about 1 - 2 weeks so plugins authors can update their plugins first.

  5. I've been anxiously awaiting my first post-2.7 upgrade to see how the new auto-upgrade worked.

    Wow... what a security and administration nightmare. I am not giving write access on my server to some strange and poorly documented script running on a strange host operated by strange people on a very strange network.

    I guess I'll keep using my old scripts to update my dozens of Wordpress installations.

    ow... you have a special script to do that? really cool.. is it somewhere I can buy or it's custom?

    So far I am relying on simplescript/fantastico to do all my wordpress upgrade.

    It's custom and it's terrible.

    It's basically just a bunch of `cp -R` commands.

    I just did another WP installation on Tuesday, just before the new release came out on Wednesday.

    2.71 looks like a bunch of minor bug fixes. If it isn't a security issue, it's not worth the time to do the upgrades.

    I also do not trust the automatic upgrade process. I do upgrades manually because I have modified some of the core files.

    The automatic updates only take a few minutes. I also had a few bugs because I had to and re-edit some of the core files, but I appreciate the simplicity of the upgrade.
