A New WordPress For The Holidays

November 27, 2010

Technology, Wordpress

While catching up on the WordPress blog, I noticed a post about WP 3.1.  The new linking (and blog post search) capabilities seemed oh so impressive.  So I decided to check them out.

Yes, I do have access to the new code as I host my main blog on WordPress.com.  That makes me a beta tester.  And I really like what I am seeing in the beta.  I am quite impressed with the new means of searching my blog to find past posts that I want to reference.

But all of this reminded me of something simple: I hadn’t checked on WP status for quite some time.  And when I checked out my test site, I realized that I was well behind on GA versions.  So I spent a few hours updating my test platform to WP 3.0.1.  And since I was updating WP, I took the time to update XAMPP (and the core Apache and MySQL components of the test system).  I am now up-to-date.  And I can’t wait to update the entire platform to the new WP 3.1 when it is released.
