Just finished upgrading both blogs to WordPress 2.7. I wouldn’t have bothered but apparently with 2.7 now WordPress can upgrade itself. The process itself is easy but as usual it’s a collection of a bunch of easy steps combined with the pre-upgrade work like backup that makes it take a while. Glad to have it done, the admin interface is way better, adding pictures is easier, and I also added the “re-captcha” system.
The latter means anyone can comment without a user account. Registering means you won’t need to do or even see the re-captcha. One nice thing about this particular captcha system is it helps to digitize books while performing it’s main function of preventing spam. Can’t argue with that.
