    does wordpress 2.7 automatically redirect old slugs to new slugs when you change them?

    how do you mean re-direct?
    if you update your permalinks - then yes it automatically resets everything.

    got the answer by doing the experiment...
    so for example you made a post yesterday and forgot to change the slug and you published it already..

    then you try to change the slug to a new one the next day, somebody linked to the old slug and it gets accessed it will be redirected to the new one.

    yesterday:
    old-slug
    next day:
    new-slug

    after changing to the new slug:
    old-slug (gets redirected to the) new-slug

    no need for a plugin
