2.2 Dropped

WordPress 2.2 “Getz” is now available. Go get it! It’s totally worth upgrading. Here is Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie playing It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got That Swing to listen to while upgrading, you’ll be done before the song is.

  1. There would be a new version just two weeks after I finally take the 2.1 plunge. Any word on how this release will affect theme and plugin compatibility? It seemed like the jump from 2.0 to 2.1 caused a lot of authors to revamp their code.

  3. It’s a great upgrade.

    Only problem is ExecPHP plug-in can only be used for one widget. Widgets 2 through 9 just repeat code from first widget. (And I had nine.)

  4. Hi Matt,

    Just upgraded WordPress from 2.1.3 to 2.2. On trying to run the upgrade script kept getting fatal error file not found, wp-settings line 84 which is the call to advanced-cache.php

    If you don’t have this plugin installed the upgrade fails. I was able to delete three lines from wp-settings.php (Lines 82, 83, 84):

    // For an advanced caching plugin to use, static because you would only want one
    if ( defined(‘WP_CACHE’) )
    require (ABSPATH . ‘wp-content/advanced-cache.php’);

    This may be because we once used advanced cache plugin.

    Thanks for all the hard work, WordPress is the greatest!

  5. I’m holding off on any updates for awhile. Just got my blog the way I want it, and would rather learn from the mistakes of others than from my own at this time.
