Point 72 Beta 1 Available

Please try it out and give us some feedback in the forums. Enjoy!

Abbreviated upgrade instructions for the impatient:

Upgrading from 0.71

  1. Overwrite your old .71 files, backing up most likely your index.php and any other files you customized.
  2. Open up wp-config.sample.php and edit the database information. Then rename that file wp-config.php.
  3. Do a happy dance because that’s probably the last time you’ll ever have to manually edit a configuration file.,
  4. Run wp-admin/upgrade-071-to-072.php
  5. Login and double check all of the options transferred successfully. That should be it!
