WordPress 2 has been released, so the big question now is whether to upgrade immediately or wait until things settle down.
As I use quite a few plugins here I've decided to setup a test blog on one of my spare domains. I can then, hopefully, test plugins etc., before taking "the plunge". (Don't expect to see anything interesting over on that domain by the way 🙂 )
The WordPress developers have provided a list of plugins that are meant to work with the new version, so I'll be working my way through my own list.
I haven't exactly been wowed by my first impressions of WordPress 2. Yes there is that Ajax interface for posting, but that's more aesthetic than functional. There maybe other functionality "under the hood" that I am not aware of, so I'll reserve judgement.
