As you may recall, I blogged about the problem I encountered when I updated my blog to WordPress 2.9. In a nutshell, my posts were missing their schedule, which happened once before after a blog overhaul. I have since found a fix to the issue (well, my designer/programmer found it), but I am still cautious as a result.
I just noticed that WordPress is urging people to update to WP 2.9.1 now with a notice at the top of the Admin dashboard. If you are thinking about making the upgrade, it’s advisable to see what features were changed and to evaluate whether it’s worth the bit of risk that could accompany any upgrade.
If you do decide to upgrade to 2.9.1, make sure you back your site up first before you push the button. Trust me, one small issue can cause hours of work for you or for your programmer. You were warned!
