Last night I downloaded WordPress 2.1, unzipped it and got ready to upload it and do the upgrade. Wait! Why was I doing this the hard way? I logged into my control panel to see if my hosting company already had the upgrade available. Woohoo! One click automatic, baby. No mistakes. Gotta love that.
One of the best new features of the upgrade is to be able to set any static page as the home page and move the blog to a separate page. This is huge and allows WordPress to be used as more of a content management system. I’ve already got plans for revamping a few small sites I need to rework soon.
