It was a fairly painless update (thanks to the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin), but there were a few quirks I’ve had to address:
- Avatars. WP 2.6 has much better support for Avatars (images used to identify authors of comments). But, my theme doesn’t natively support them so I’ve had to maintain use of the Easy Gravatars plugin.
- Turbo mode. This is an admin. function, but basically it lets you
speed up some admin functions with Google Gears integration. Gears behind my firewall is messy, but I will be trying this from more open connections in the future.
