We love WordPress, but hasn’t it been a bit dizzying to keep up with all those releases made in 2009?

Beginning in February, we were treated to 2.7.1 (Coltrane), then we were lulled until June when 2.8 ( Baker) was launched. But since then, they have launched 3 more releases in quick succession:

  • July 9, 2009 WordPress 2.8.1
  • July 20, 2009 WordPress 2.8.2
  • August 3, 2009 WordPress 2.8.3 Security Release

The evolution is quite fun and each launch it gets better and better.

Kudos goes out to the developer community, most of whom are actively updating during the betas and keep their plugins, widgets, and themes compatible with the latest releases.

How do most of you cope with the updates? Hit the auto-updater and hope your blog stays up? We always recommend a backup plan – just in case!
