WordPress 2.1 is out

Well, here it is: WordPress 2.1 “Ella”, released on schedule.

You can read the details on the Development Blog, or just download it and get stuck in to the new features.

If you’re upgrading, make sure you have a backup of your database, and copies of any core files you’ve modified. Oh, and keep an eye on Brian Layman – he’ll probably have something to say about his nifty upgrade script.

Matt has confirmed that WordPress is going to be on a regular release schedule from now on, with the next version due on April 23.

And for anyone not sure about upgrading – you can safely keep using version 2.0.x, as this will be maintained, cared for and kept secure with updates for the next few years.

I’ll be upgrading as soon as I’m sure I have everything working on my test site.
