Just upgraded to v2.1 (Ella) of WordPress – went pretty smoothly. Only glitch I’ve seen so far is that all my static pages duplicated. Not bad since I have only 6 or so, but I can see that infuriating some folks. Not sure what caused it – followed the (excellent) detailed upgrade instructions to the letter. *shrug* No deaths, no sucking chest wounds, it’s all good.
Thanks and kudos to the WordPress team! The new static-homepage feature, the autosave and the spell check are KILLER improvements. Hope they add a customizer for the rich text editor next. WordPress just gets better and better! I give it two thumbs and a coupla toes up!
