During the weekend I updated no less than 15 WordPress blogs. The operation went as smooth as a baby’s butt, and hours later, plugin updates starting pouring in. Thanks to the mass updater feature, I was able to install them all at once.

If you’re a developer and you’re interested in what’s new when a plugin updates, check out Changelogger, a plugin which:

[…] shows the latest changelog right on the plugin listing page, whenever there’s a plugin ready to be updated.

The changelog on a plugin update is being shown if the plugin author added a changelog section based on the new readme.txt example file to their plugin.

If you need to optimize your database before updating, but you don’t have access to a phpMyAdmin interface, use Portable phpMyAdmin plugin.

I’m sure a maintenance release will follow in January, perhaps to improve the new features (I still don’t like the post thumb feature and I still use the Get the Image plugin), or to fix the omnipresent bugs. Don’t get me wrong, but new releases always bring new and fresh bugs.

Happy 2.9.
