Updated to WordPress 2.8 in 5 seconds…

Yeah… It’s time to update WordPress engine to the latest one ~ version 2.8. There is lot of improvements since version 2.7. And it is faster to use it too. I updated my testing blog site to version 2.8 with automatically upgrade. It took only 5 seconds to complete the entire process. For your information, my testing blog only has 2 posts on it. Not sure how long will it take on blog with lot of posts.

Download WordPress 2.8

I love WordPress. It is the best blogging engine that I use so far. Using it on 3 of my blogs – Jayce Ooi’s Paradise, Pretty Girl 2u and SP Blogger of course.

So what are you waiting for? Head to WordPress to download it or use upgrade automatically function and install. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I really love the one click upgrade feature…no need to upload using FTP anymore and deploy :p
