This latest upgrade (2.3.3) doesn't even let us know what the upgrade is for. For all we know, the upgrade does nothing more than fix a bug that allows the possibility someone might see draft versions of posts. I, for one, wouldn't even care about that, as even my drafts are profound.
Honestly, if you cannot be bothered to read, how can you be bothered to write?
1. Your reference to the draft bug, wasnt a bug, thats a security issue, and it was fixed in 2.3.2. They've moved on to 2.3.3. Furthermore, how can you possibly say that they dont tell you what it;s for:
I told you, in this thread. I mimic'd almost verbatim whats on the developers blog, here:
where, guess, what, they tell you what was changed, and even link to trac tickets.
It's a FIVE file upgrade. It takes 2 minutes, 1 whole minute to unzip the files, (if youre intellectually challenged) and one minute to upload the files (if youre on a dialup). For fuck sake, what is the fricken problem with the whiners?
Honest to God, its a wonder anyone develops free software with the attitudes of some people. You bitch if youre hacked, you bitch when youre told you MIGHT be hacked, and you bitch when youre told to change FIVE files.
I really do pity Matt, et al, sometimes. No wonder they hardly read this forum.
I helped a guy over the phone two nights ago, upgrade his blog from v2.1.x to 2.3.2.. hes hosted on bluehost. We followed, nearly verbatim, the extended upgrade instructions on the codex. He did ALL the work. He backed up his databse inside phpmyadmin. he backed up his blog site. He did it all...
He didnt have an ftp client when we started, he barely knew how to use one once installed, and he managed to do an upgrade with NOT one single problem.
He upgraded to 2.3.3 last night: he went to my site, he downloaded the zip with the 5 files, he unpacked it, and uploaded the changed files. It took him, maybe, 4 minutes.
I emailed him after he was done last night, and said this:
"You managed to do what 100 ppl cant seem to get, pat yourself on the back"
This guy is still on aol, and he's a genius compared to some of you.
