Automatic Updates?

    I know this might sound a little odd, why not have the updates done automatically? like most programs? just an idea. have the software ping a update server and have it install the updates automatically... security is an issue i know, but if google, microsoft, And everyone else can do it, i know you can do it. :)

    This idea scares me. What if an update breaks a theme? A vital plugin? This feature is just asking for trouble from the general user base, even if it isnt' enabled by default.

    See trac ticket #5560: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5560

    Core files now are able to be (securely) automatically updated.

    We've had a built-in upgrader since 2.7, but we will not put it an automatic installer b/c we can't control each installations server configuration etc, and if something broke, we wouldn't be able to fix it. This needs to be left up to the site owner.
