    Read the dev blog.

    Backing up your database and files is recommended before ANY upgrade

    ==== The official method.====
    Upgrade just like any other upgrade:
    – delete
    /wp-admin
    /wp-includes (but NOT your languages folder!!)
    all wp-* files at root EXCEPT wp-config.php
    (Leave /wp-content and /wp-images alone.)

    – upload the replacements for what you have deleted (so don’t upload /wp-content or /wp-images)

    Use the link in the Dev blog to read the Codex page on upgrading.

    There is no need to run upgrade.php after doing this.

    ====The UNofficial method====
    Right now I don’t have the changelog, but a list of the changed files is below. If you do it this way, you are on your own as far as support is concerned.
    wp-admin/categories.php
    wp-admin/edit-page-form.php
    wp-admin/post.php
    wp-admin/upload.php
    wp-admin/users.php
    wp-commentsrss2.php
    wp-includes/comment-functions.php
    wp-includes/functions-post.php
    wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php
    wp-includes/template-functions-category.php
    wp-includes/version.php
    wp-settings.php
    xmlrpc.php

    These can be downloaded from here:

    Don’t worry it threw me for a loop when I first read it as well. 🙂

    Updated my site in 5 minutes following the unofficial method. So far so good. Thank’s for the guides!

    Used ‘unofficial’ (1.5.1.3 – 1.5.2). Didn’t disable plugins. No probs during/after. Unofficial, you made sense to me.

    WordPress 1.52 really owns, best blog script i’ve ever used!
