Unexpectedly I logged in tonight to discover that new version of WordPress is made available and its not WordPress 2.9!

New release is a security hardening branch to help you stay more secure and while I haven’t seen any direct urging notifications on developers blog, it addresses several security issues that exist in your blog and as such – Upgrade Highly Recommended!

As I write this post, my main blog as well as 5 of my Niche Blogs that have different plugins and theme configurations were upgraded with no problems using Automated Upgrade option so I think its safe to say that go ahead and upgrade now!

Just be sure to backup first!
