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.

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.

WordPress 2.2 Released

Earlier this morning, Matt released a new version of WordPress 2.2, the best blogging platform in the world. WordPress can be used almost for Anything – as long as you know how to use it properly.

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!

[…] Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress, announced this morning that version 2.2 of WordPress is available. This is very welcome news indeed, because among the other things it includes is “A new Blogger importer that is able to handle the latest version of Google’s Blogger product and seamlessly import posts and comments without any user interaction beyond entering your login.” As soon as the upgrade becomes available on Dreamhost in its one-click installs, I’ll be upgrading this installation to 2.2 so that I can import the almost 2 and a half years of posts and comments from my Blogger version of this blog into this installation so that all my blogging can appear in this one spot. Thank you, Matt and the whole WordPress team, for all your excellent work and effort. […]

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.
