Just upgraded to WordPress version 2.5 yesterday. Â My host Dreamhost has a super easy 1 click upgrade, so it only took a few minutes for the upgrade. Â Just had to update the database and I was all set. Â My custom theme didn’t break, nor does there seem to be anything else broken (cross my fingers) since the upgrade.
From the user end not too much will probably change as a result of this upgrade. Â But the admin upgrades with 2.5 are very impressive. Â The whole look and feel has been overhauled in a good way. Â It took a few minutes for me to adjust to some of the changes, but so far so good. Â
The upgraded RTE (Rich Test Editor) is great, works so much better with Safari. Â The Add media functions are a great addition, including a YouTube video in a post just got a whole lot easier. Â Overall I’m very impressed with the upgrade and will begin moving my clients over to 2.5.
