WordPress 4.5 “Coleman” has been released.
I just applied it to the five WordPress sites I manage by manually triggering the auto-update and everything went through fine.
There are some updates to the standard themes that you will need to manually trigger for update, but there was no drama there either.
I fully expect a rash of little updates to get released over the coming days as new bugs are spotted.
WordPress 4.4.1 has been released.
You can see the list of fixes here. Your site will probably auto-update soon if you can’t be bothered to give it a nudge before.
There is also an update to the Twenty Sixteen theme, which you will have to trigger manually, if you are using it of course.
WordPress 4.4 has landed. As usual, early on you will need to manually initiate the auto-update. I’m guessing in a day or so it will just happen by itself.
I did the update on 5 installations and all went through with no dramas. There will no doubt be a slew of updates over the next few days, which is pretty common after a big release. The auto-update feature means you can take the lazy approach and just let it do its thing.
WordPress 4.3 “Billie” has arrived.
I was on my blog admin pages doing something else and I noticed the update was available before the auto-updater kicked in and updated the site automatically, so I gave it a nudge and now I’m upgraded.
Like most of the recent WordPress updates, there is little new that interests me, but it’s always a good idea to be up to date, so whatever…
By the time you read this, you are probably auto-magically running on WordPress 4.2.4.
It’s a security release. You can read about the changes here.
Have a good time sitting back and doing nothing while it takes care of itself!
WordPress 4.2.3 has been released.
It contains fixes for some pretty nasty stuff. Usually, the updates have to be manually triggered for a day or so before the auto-update feature picks them up. I was on the blog this morning and there were no “manually triggered auto-updates” available, so it looks like this one has been pushed straight out, which probably makes sense.
By the time you’ve read this you are probably up to date already, but if not, get on your blog and give it a nudge.
I did 4 upgrades and all went fine. I can’t say things look that different after it, but you’ve got to keep on top of these upgrades I guess.
