    I am getting tired of that to be honest.

    It's not as simple as that to update all the time. I have a few WP blogs with some extensions, templates and other tools if I want to stay up to date, I need a full time employee. Every update, something is a broken.

    I wouldn't say that is true. Often it doesn't break sites. We've been upgrading 1000+ WordPress sites for customers for years and only about 2 sites break when it is upgraded.

    Yes that is correct but this time it is an important upgrade... just like last time too.

    That's nice an all but I can't image manually upgrading 1,000+ sites, just to have to do it again when the next version of WordPress comes out. That's a lot of man hours for re-inventing the wheel.

    The recent upgrade took us under 1 hour for 1,000+ WordPress site. Manually upgrading those installs with your own patch could take days, weeks or maybe months.

    Sorry, but that's a pile of baloney.

    There are quite a few very advanced integrations that can be done with WordPress and other apps, but you'll end up version-locked because of it. WordPress' team takes months to properly code out new versions, yet some people expect users to magically re-code a complex site within mere days?

    Seriously?

    Don't get me wrong ! i was talking about regular websites using Wordpress as CMS.

    A major update to the WordPress code and the changes will break some of your plugins and may even break your theme.

    Everytime wordpress announce an update, they publish a clear changelog with all bugs fixed, deprecated and new functions ! So if i have a complex website or app i will let my Dev team fix any possible problem before i make that update.

    Upgrades within WordPress 3 have been smooth sailing. I believe it was the upgrade from WP2 to WP3 last year that effected a few, but again depends on what was done within the core code...which you don't want play with anyways.

    The need to bring in a better wordpress default theme. Default theme leaves a bad impression of those who are new to Wordpress.

    I've heard some hosts are sending out emails warning their customers about the security holes in the old Wordpress version and urging them to upgrade.

    I would like to call it bad business and development decisions. When you can't upgrade your WP anymore, you've done wrong. No matter what you did, because -all- modifications to -all- functions, classes etc can be overwritten with a (custom made) plugin.

    Hey,

    Anyone still reading this, there has been one plugin issue with WordPress 3.2.2...it is the smushit plugin. The plugin will throw a http error as the image is uploading and processing.

    The plugins website hasn't listed any updates as yet, but a lot have also reported it to be broken. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-smushit/

    I thought it was because of slow smushit server over at Yahoo and not the code. Any updates?
