Automatic Upgrade to WordPress 2.7 Beta 2
I have got to tell you this; it is so cool. Upgrading WordPress has never been easier, just like the click of a button. Ever since I moved from WordPress 2.6 to WordPress 2.7 Beta 1, the overall experience has been fascinating.
From the sidebar of the Admin Dashboard, I accessed the Tools menu and then click on Update. Immediately, the system performed an automatic upgrade of WordPress to the latest nightly build – which is currently WordPress 2.7 Beta 2.
The ability of being able to cut-down maintenance and upgrade time, from the infamous 5-minute installation and upgrade, to a mere 5-second upgrade is a major achievement!
Great work to WordPress for having achieved this feat!
