Are you noticing the frequency of updates from WordPress? Since version 2.6, I believe we can list down all updates by month. Check it out:
July 15 – version 2.6
August 15 – version 2.6.1
September 8 – version 2.6.2
October 23 – version 2.6.3
I’m not complaining at all, all I’m just saying is that I’m noticing that the frequency is getting to be very close. In 2008 alone we had 3 updates in Feb 5, March 29, April 25 and July 15. 7 updates in all for 2008. What’s the story behind this? Is WordPress just all to careful, noticing that the last releases were major and minor security fixes. Is WordPress tightening its fort making sure that their codes are rock solid for the build up for 2.7? Good thing I guess. Good thing that we’ve got a team to look after our blogs.
Anyway, do you upgrade/update your blogs as the versions are released? Are you an early adopter or you wait a month or so until everyone else has upgraded AND THEN do it yourself? Please tell me which are you and why you do it.
Let me go first: For WordPress, I’m an early adopter. WordPress doesn’t loose the grip, and they make sure everything’s nailed down before releasing an upgrade/update. So because I trust them, I’m an early adopter.
