Upgrades/Updates too frequent?
Are you noticing the frequency of updates from WordPress? Â Since version 2.6, I believe we can list down all updates by month. Â Check it out:
July 15 – version 2.6
August 15 – version 2.6.1
September 8 – version 2.6.2Â
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. Â 7 updates in all for 2008. Â What’s the story behind this? Â Is WordPress just all to careful, noticing that the last releases were major and minor security fixes. Â Is WordPress tightening its fort making sure that their codes are rock solid for the build up for 2.7? Â Good thing I guess. Â 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? Â Are you an early adopter or you wait a month or so until everyone else has upgraded AND THEN do it yourself? Â Please tell me which are you and why you do it.
Let me go first: Â For WordPress, I’m an early adopter. Â WordPress doesn’t loose the grip, and they make sure everything’s nailed down before releasing an upgrade/update. Â So because I trust them, I’m an early adopter.Â
