WordPress 2.5 here works just fine. It took a little over 8 minutes, but most of it was backing up the database and site files. I’m still using the The Instant Upgrade plugin by Zirona.
I like the improved dashboard, but I still can’t entirely remove the WordPress Development Blog and WordPress Planet feeds. Sure, I can edit the URLs and load them with another, but I usually stick to my news reader for news updates. Fortunately, with the Fluency Admin theme plugin, those are below the fold.
I’m glad the stats widgets is built into the main dashboard page.
I’ve switched back to the visual editor because Matt says it won’t mess with my code anymore. I find that in full screen mode, the insert link pop-up doesn’t display.
I’m stoked about the few-click plugin upgrades. WordPress.com Stats had to be upgraded and it really took a few clicks. But, plugins need to be in the WordPress Plugin Directory for it to be detected.
Lastly, timestamp publishing is easier to understand.
