    I think they left out the version text “You are using a development version (2.5)”

  11. Vishwas (1 comments.) says:

    I upgraded after viewing this news on my dashboard… unfortunately, now the updated dashboard says something like this:

    You are using a development version (2.5). Cool!

    False Alarm

    Hi, many thanx for WP 2.5.

    Just a question: I’ve installed it just minutes ago but i can’t seem to find a way to edit my themes. Is there any way to edit my themes.


  26. Braggus (3 comments.) says:

    Already solved the problem. Advanced-Admin-Menus was on. When it was of the theme-editor menu came ahead.


  27. TheTick (17 comments.) says:

    Upgraded, and all of the plug-ins (minus wp-united which I expected) are working as they should. Rock on!

    Frickin thing went crazy on me – had to delete my entire directory and re-upload the old one for now…

  31. Tom (1 comments.) says:

    Easy upgrade and the result is WOW!


  32. Chris says:

    Can someone help Eng update Akismet Auntie Spam (a greasemonkey script)? He apparently doesn’t have access to the new dashboard and won’t be able to update it for a while.

    This script is the reason I use Greasemonkey and makes scanning the spam moderation queue in WordPress cake.

  33. NotANiche (1 comments.) says:

    Hey Ron,

    There is a plugin which automatically does the work for you. It’s a great time saver and it works great. Check out the shortcut for upgrading to WordPress 2.5

    Use it and you are on the latest version in no time. :)
