I received an email notice this morning that my site had been updated to 3.8-alpha (no version number included). I then went to the FTP file manager on my hosting service and found the following:
* Holds the WordPress DB revision, increments when changes are made to the WordPress DB schema.
* @global int $wp_db_version
$wp_db_version = 25824;
So from what I can gather, my site hasn’t really been updated since db version #25824. Core just broke the 26000 mark. What gives? Is that alpha nightly builds have not actually been offered yet, OR do I have some sort of code glitch that won’t allow the update to complete its process?
