Upgraded to WordPress 2.5

On March 30, 2008, in Miscellaneous, by Anuj Gakhar

I use WordPress as my blogging software and I just read the news that WordPress 2.5 has been released. I have been following some posts about this and there has been a lot of talk about this release. This is a major release with features like multi-file uploading, one-click plugin upgrades, built-in galleries, customizable dashboard, salted passwords and cookie encryption, media library, a WYSIWYG that doesn’t mess with your code, concurrent post editing protection, full-screen writing, and search that covers posts and pages.

So, I just went ahead and did an upgrade. My previous version was 2.3.2 . The upgrade went smoothly apart from the fact that one of my plugins named “Gregarious” stopped working after the upgrade. This plugin was handling the social bookmarking icons on the site including Digg and others. Not a big problem, I can try to fix this later, but the new version does look good indeed. For anyone currently on WordPress, its definitely worth upgrading.

P.S. Check your wordpress hosting provider for more updates of the latest version of wordpress.

  1. Sounds good, I’ve been waiting for this one! And they have a nice new website to boot 🙂

    Do you use any code syntax highlighting plugins? I think I had a problem with 2.3.3 using syntaxhighlighter (http://erik.range-it.de/wordpress/plugins/syntaxhighlighter/).

    Just wanted to know if anybody else has with the new release.

    @Michael, I have that plugin working just fine. I never really switched to 2.3.3 as that was only a bug fix release. I jumped from 2.3.2 to 2.5 .

    I use the same syntaxhighlighter plugin that you meantioned though.
