WordPress 3.8 is Out
I started an upgrade to 3.7.1 today and WordPress updated the site to 3.8.0.
From what I read, the automatic update introduced in 3.7.0 will not automatically update the site to a new level, only to a new version of a level. You have to initiate updates to a new level.
The admin area has been redone. The default color scheme is pretty ugly. Actually, it is very hard on the eyes, but you now have a choice of 8 different color schemes in your user profile. Some of the other color schemes are not bad.
Thus far, I don't see any problems.
Midnight is not bad however Sunrise is yuck. I am happy they got rid of the auto update. Like everything it will take some getting use to.
Again, updated with no problems.
They did not get rid of the autoupdate. From what I read it will not automatically update to a new level, such as 3.7 to 3.8, but it will autoupdate from 3.8 to 3.8.1, which is a version.

I wish the WordPress team would focus on something useful, such as the ability to relocate the login page.
It did not update automatically for me.
Updated it from the admin side.
I have done several updates now and have not experienced any problems, other than ugly admin syndrome. What were these guys thinking?
Howdy! Your site at IOWADAWG'S BLAWG has been updated automatically to WordPress 3.8.1.
No further action is needed on your part. For more on version 3.8.1, see the About WordPress screen:

Did not have to do a thing! Now my two blogs are updated with no action needed by me like in the past.
