First of all, WordPress 2.6.1 was released last Friday, which is probably what a lot of bloggers were waiting for before adapting to the 2.6 branch. I used to wait for the .1 release myself, but stopped doing that with 2.6 actually, and I’m glad I did:
If you’re happy with 2.6, however, keep on using it. You need not upgrade to 2.6.1 if 2.6 is getting the job done.
This is a first from the WordPress developers, telling you to nab the new version if you feel like it, but if you don’t think you need it then you don’t need to bother! Will you update your blog to 2.6.1?
