    The security fix is critical as it can let a hacker get into your site.

    Unless changes are major it is really difficult to upgrade versions if you have a lot of plugins and widgets. It takes a lot of time to deactivate themand reactivate them.

    I believe wordpress developers should also focus in enabling a easier way to upgrade versions. It is a pity given that it is one of the best blog packages available.

    Also the page where it is displayed the plug-ins and widgets is really
    chaotic. I am also a Joomla user and to tell the truth Joomla makes your life easy to upgrade versions and to keep track of plug-ins (new and recently updated)

    Just some positive and constructive criticism.

    I guess an auto-upgrade feature is highly requested and I would like to see it too.
    I did the upgrade without deactivating my plugins.
    However, I advise making a backup of your blog first in case something does go wrong.
