The blog was down for about 30 minutes during 12:10PM GMT and 12:40PM GMT due to scheduled maintenance for WordPress upgrade released 15 hours earlier. WordPress has been upgraded from 2.3 to 2.3.1, which is a bug-fix and security release. The upgrade went smooth except for one thing. After I finished uploading all the new files, I accessed the link http://greysquare.org/blog/wp-admin/upgrade.php for the process to begin. But a page opened telling me “No Upgrade Required. Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!”. For a second there I was worried that the upgrade process did not recognize my upgrade. But all was well after I check the dashboard. This was my first successful WordPress upgrade.
Some of the notable Bug fixes can be found here:
More than 20 bugs were fixed in this release.
Special Note: to users on netfirms hosting who have previously used the Pretty URLâ€™s in WordPress for Netfirms post to correct their permalink problem should again access their wp-includes/canonical.php and comment out the last line which should look like this after the edit,
