Upgrading WordPress

Well, it’s one of the great and annoying things about open source software – frequent code changes, updates, and security releases.  Version 2.5 of WordPress came out less then a month ago.  I decided, I’d wait for the first subversion release (2.5.1), which, of course, would inevitably fix problems with all the new features introduced.  Unfortunately, one of my blogs (not this one), was “hacked” and had malware inserted into a post.  So, I went ahead and upgraded all my blogs.  Now, three days later, WordPress releases 2.5.1.  Some guys just have all the luck, maybe sometime I’ll have some!  Since 2.5.1 fixes a “very important security fix”, I installed it immediately. . . let the script kiddies hack somebody else.
