[resolved] 3.3.1 vs 3.4 (5 posts)

    Hello All,
    I heard new WP 3.4 will be released in May.
    the project I am working on would also take another 1 month to complete.
    1- What if I test and develop with 3.4 beta versions now. And when WP 3.4 is finally released then i can switch to that. But will that be more stable then using 3.3.1 ?
    2- Will WP 3.3.1 still be good enough for next few years ?
    3- Will all my tested plugins of 3.3.1 will work instantly for 3.4 ?
    4- The project I am working on has multisite and multinetwork involved. But I didn't find any changes in this field in ver 3.4. Do you know anything more on it.
    Sorry for some irrelevant questions, I am new to WordPress and want to confirm these before I make any mistakes.
    thank you

    The best bet is for you to test them under 3.4 to be sure, and make sure all functionality is the same. It's a good idea to start before it is released, and after the final version is out as well, to be sure that you caught everything.

    Chances are, with the changes being made, nothing of normal functionality should change between releases. 3.3.1 isn't too far off from 3.4, and the core is still relatively unchanged. The only way to know for certain is to test under a variety of circumstances in any case, whether the current version or not.

    It's always best to update your install when a new one is released for security purposes at least anyway.

  3. Will all my tested plugins of 3.3.1 will work instantly for 3.4 ?

    That's an unqualified maybe. There are a lot of plugins out there and not all of them are well written or even maintained.

    As davidjlaietta suggested, test with the 3.4 beta to see if there are any compatibility issues right now.

  4. 2- Will WP 3.3.1 still be good enough for next few years ?

    No. Maybe months, but since it won't get ANY new updates, bug fixes, etc, it's risky.

    4- The project I am working on has multisite and multinetwork involved. But I didn't find any changes in this field in ver 3.4. Do you know anything more on it.

    Nothing major. I'm running 3.4 right now and have Multisite and Multinetwork. No issues :)

    I have decided to test with ver 3.4 beta, this will be a better idea.
    Also I would forum post the problems, results and fixes I come across.
