WordPress 2.0 Out Wednesday
I just happened to notice podz' announcement that WordPress 2.0 will be released on Wednesday.
This should be pretty cool, but a word to the wise (I saw this recently in the WordPress forums): someone tried the 2.0 while in beta, switched back to 1.5, found his database messed up (for want of a more technical term) — and was advised that the upgrade changed the database and that there was no simple "going back." What this means is that backups are more important than usual.
There's a nice writeup of the new WordPress 2.0 features in the Codex. Scroll down to the nice table — it looks like they've more clearly defined user roles, from blog owner, editors, authors, contributors and subscribers. This could be pretty useful for user-active blogs.
As usual, my plan is to watch the WP user forums in the coming weeks to see what issues, if any, this latest upgrade may bring. May it all go smoothly. :)
[Added] It turns out that the announcement was made by miklb. Late-night posting, and all that. :)
