Well, thanks to the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin I was able to upgrade my WordPress blog in less than 5 minutes and create a backup of the entire database in the process. So far everything came up fine, the exception being that I had to re-enable most of my plugins. Since this has always been a problem for me with WAU, it was the first thing I checked after the upgrace. I’m now running on WordPress 2.6.
There don’t seem to be a lot of (read any) security updates related to this upgrade, though there are a lot of usability updates. I’ll have to check out ‘gears’ when I have some extra time to spare.
