Support » Everything else WordPress » worth upgrading?

  • In the light of the changelog being empty and a number of bugs and other problems being posted here, can somebody tell me why I should switch to 1.0? I’m not being sarcastic, I genuinely want to know what it can offer me that .72 can’t.

  • Well, for one thing, I can see a lot of hacks moving to support 1.o. Considering the fact that the my-hacks.php page is now standard, it makes it easier for the modders and hackers to do their hacks. It should make it easier to install and document them as well.
    As well, with many of the files being re-named, and even combined in some cases, as well as the new folder names, new hacks that are created will use this new naming convention. So, if you want some new or up-to-date functionality, you either code it yourself or upgrade and move to the new hacks.
    My understanding is that the change log and feature list are coming soon. In terms of the bugs and such, well, each person has a slightly different set of issues, it seems. Some have had little or no trouble, while others have had some more complex problems. I feel like it’s all part of the learning curve, and while it can be frustrating, it’s a good way to muck about and get into the guts of the files.
    So far for me, the neatest feature is the EDIT THIS link right on the article itself. That and the ability to just save a post for editing and publishing later. Lots more, I’m sure, but I’ve been busy with documentation and the like, so I’ve not had a lot of time to play.

    I’m not going to switch for a while either.

    since I’m already on a 1.0 alpha release out of CVS, and I have huge changes made to the php code, I’m probably going to wait to make sure all the low-hanging fruit have been fixed up — don’t want to merge more than once a month. 😉
    But if you’re back on .7, it might be worth the upgrade headaches for the enhancements 1.0 brings.

    I couldn’t go back to .72, ever. I think that speaks volumes.

    I was planning on switching my template site to WP anyway, so what I’ll probably do is install 1.0 on the new server and see how that pans out. I’m afraid I can’t see bugs and upgrade issues as a welcome opportunity to ‘get into the guts of the files’. I’d rather have smooth machinery that allows me to concentrate on writing and designing, which is what I have with .72.

    I can certainly appreciate your unwillingness to get into the guts of the files when your focus is on other aspects of your work. I’m willing to do this because I have a lot to learn about PHP.
    BTW, I have seen your templates, and I like them very much!

    BAH…forgot to log in…the Anonymous post above was ME! 🙂
