I just upgraded my personal blog to the current 2.7.1 release of WordPress. It was pretty much painless even with all the outdated plugins getting their own upgrades in the process. The trigger for all the upgrading activity tonight was the advanced Disqus commenting plugin. The latest version of Disqus allows comments to be left using Facebook Connect and Twitter logins. Having the capability for Seesmic video comments doesn’t hurt neither!
The GUI of WordPress 2.7.1 is very nice and looks much more professional and easy to use.
Alas, WordPress 2.8 is coming soon so my time on 2.7 may be short-lived.
