Welcome to the New Year and a new release of WordPress

After an extended break and a frantic start to the New Year – welcome to 2010.

In the intervening period we were treated to the latest 2.9 upgrade to WordPress. As always upgrade as soon as you can backup your site and stay current with patches.

An interesting year ahead with WordPress – and specifically the merging of MU – the multiple user blogging platform based on WordPress in the main core. The application just goes from strength to strength and every time I use it I get the feeling that some products like WordPress just exemplify what can be done with co-operation and innovation in equal measure. So WordPress heres to an even better year ahead.
