Updated WordPress. Great!

I updated my WordPress software today. Got it done using the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin. Really nifty. It takes off all the work from you and goes through a systematic approach in updating your version of WordPress software.

I got 2.5.1 and it looks really good. The new UI is very neat and easier to manage. Some new features too – including embedding videos (this wasn’t available in the previous version). In fact, I was all set to use the EmbedIt WordPress plugin but it looks like I don’t need it anymore. I would definitely recommend this upgrade for people running their own WordPress blogs (wordpress.org)

Here’s how the new dashboard looks like:

One problem I faced was that I had to reactivate all my plugins manually. For some reason, the automatic reactivation (after upgrade) did not work. But that wasn’t too much hassle at all.
