For those who never read the news in their WordPress Dashboard (that’s the screen you get when you log into the admin panel), WordPress has released version 2.2.3 of the world’s best blogging software. 2.2.3 is a security and bug-fix release for the 2.2 series. Since this is a security release, it is very important that all WordPress users upgrade immediately.
I know that many users dread upgrading because you never know what might happen. However, this upgrade was pretty simple since it just replaces certain files and doesn’t affect the database. All I did was upload and replace all the files. The entire process took about three minutes.
If the thought of upgrading WordPress terrifies you, then you might consider this plugin from Techie Buzz that will upgrade your blog automatically. If you upgrade with the plugin, I would love to hear your experience.
