    Hi Guys,

    I am working on a wordpress site customization, my concern is if i remember correctly wordpress update happens in forms of diff's now so that only lines which are changed will be updated in the new instance. Is my understanding correct.
    also is it possible to obtain these diff's directly without downloading whole package.
    the reason for asking this is as most of you would have guessed as per requirements I am heavily customizing core files and some variables. that is strictly for internal usage hence can't contribute back at this time. however the upgrade issues is what i needed help from the community.

    Is my understanding correct.

    I don't think so, As I understand it, any changed files will be updated as a whole.

    thanks for the confirmation esmi.
    that brings me to the next question
    => is it possible to obtain these diff's directly without downloading whole package.

    mainly i am looking to do the upgrade manually if i have a diff to see what are the changes.

    There isn't a list of diffs, if that's what you're looking for. The closest you'll get is the list of tickets and the changelog for each release. Personally, I think that running your own diff manually would be the safest way to deal with this.

    Thanks for the info again. I was dreading that but then that seems like the only way out for me.

    Just when i closed the topic i think this might help.

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset?old_path=%2Ftrunk&old=23345&new_path=%2Ftrunk&new=24330&sfp_email=&sfph_mail=

    this is a diff from current truck to 3.5.1 and in this bottom of the screen you have an option to download unified diff.
