If you manage a lot of WordPress blogs, you might have noticed that TONS of your plug-ins had upgrades waiting today. Wondering where all of the WordPress plug-in updates came from? WordPress 2.8 was released, and the best plug-in authors and developers are on it, releasing new versions of their plugins to ensure full compatibility.
Just because the plug-in developers have already upgraded doesn’t mean that you should run out and upgrade all of your blogs to WordPress 2.8 immediately. Just like any other software, there can be bugs and major issues that don’t creep up for a day or two.
Hold off for a couple of days at least. If you don’t hear anything about real issues or big problems, then you can upgrade next week.
