    Does the automatic updates feature in 3.7 use ‘real’ cron jobs? Or does it still do the fake version, whereby a user/bot has to visit the website for the code to run.

  • Fake.

    There’s no change in wp-cron.php and how it’s called at this time.

    You CAN schedule it in real cron if you want to, but you should disable it first in wp-config:

    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);

    And then in real cron:
    curl http://example.com/wp-cron.php
