    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.

    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.

    Dawg, did you initiate the update or did it update to 3.8 automatically?

    I wish the WordPress team would focus on something useful, such as the ability to relocate the login page.

    I have done several updates now and have not experienced any problems, other than ugly admin syndrome. What were these guys thinking?
