Actually, I just upgraded my WordPress from version 2.9.2 to WordPress 3.0 last few weeks although WordPress 3.0 had been released on 17 June 2010. I usually don’t rush to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress unless there are major bugs in old WordPress version.  For your info, WordPress version 3.0 has been downloaded nearly 11 million times.

upgrade wordpress 3.0.1

Now, there is the latest WordPress version 3.0.1 which will fix around 54 bugs in WordPress 3.0. I believe this is not the final WordPress version 3 updates because based on previous experiences, WordPress team is dedicated to update the security bugs or programming errors once they find out the solutions. Therefore, I can foresee there are more updates from WordPress 3.

In case you are interested to know what bugs have been fixed in newest version, here’s the list for your reference:

Should I Upgrade To WordPress Version 3.0.1

If you are still using WordPress version 2.9.2, you are advised to upgrade to latest version to avoid some common bugs such as missed schedule posts. Besides that, WordPress Version 3.0 had fixed around 1200 bugs from WordPress 2.9.2. For me, I will not upgrade my blog to Version 3.0.1 now because this is a maintenance release and not major release. For version 3.0.1, the database version (db_version in wp_options) changed.
