Smooooooooth – WordPress auto update ….

Just used the automatic update feature in WordPress to grab the latest release. Previously I would have manually carried out the procedure and while it was normally straightforward if moving between point releases – it could be more involved when new full releases came along.

Not any more – I know the feature has been there for a while but was not expecting it to be so simple and straightforward. Basically 1 click and 1 minute and you are running the latest and greatest.

Another thumbs up for the WordPress approach to blogging – really makes it a pleasure to work with. Its a pity that other developers cannot take on board that ease of management scores highly with users and maintainers.
