UPDATE: WordPress 2.1 “Ella” is now available for download.
WordPress 2.1 “Ella” is going to be released tomorrow. This will be the first major release since version 2.0. WordPress 2.1 as any other typical major release will address security & bug fixes and also feature new functionality.
Not all people are happy with the release of WordPress 2.1, mainly because of plugin compatibility. Many plugins won’t work with 2.1 because of the deprecation of database table variables. My blogger friend Jhay talked about this earlier. I still have to check whether the plugins I use for this blog are compatible or not, then I’ll decide whether to upgrade or not.
