WordPress 2.9.1 Final Released

January 4th, 2010

WordPress 2.9.1 has been released, and is now available for downloads. This release fixes several minor issues, and the bugs which caused problems with scheduling posts and pingbacks. Upgrade is not really necessary unless you are facing any of the issues listed here.

Another interesting fact shared by Ryan Boren is that WordPress 2.9 has already clocked a million downloads till date, now that is really good. If you have not yet upgraded to WordPress 2.9, read my earlier posts describing some of the best features in WordPress 2.9 or visit this entry on WordPress Codex.

You can download WordPress 2.9.1 from here or use the automatic upgrade feature to upgrade from the admin dashboard.

    My most resistance on upgrading is the fear of some plugin break up.

    Last week I had almost 30 (of almost 60) outdated plugins, reached “only” 8 outdated ones, and now I’ve just came back to 12 outdated plugins. I believe I can get to only 3 or even 2 outdated ones, but they require some harder testing, and if they break my sites go offline.

    Updating WordPress is even more complicated, I wanna have the largest possible amount of updated plugins before upgrading to a new major version, but I don’t even have time to test these last plugins. I’m using 2.8.4 and am ready for 2.8.6 (using it in my local system and everything working), but still didn’t have time to do it.

    Well, I’ll be using 2.9 great new features before 3.0 comes up, I hope :)

      60 plugins ?

      Must be a very slow loading site.

      I can’t even begin to think why someone would need 60 plugins.

    I’m glad that 2.9.1 is finally out. I’ve only been waiting to deploy 2.9 for 2+ weeks. I waited because of the cron issues that were widely reported, as myself and many of my clients schedule posts. Why did it take so long to get this polished bugfix release out? I get it is the holiday season, but there were several problems that needed to be fixed.

    I have just upgraded to the new 2.9.1, I hope the cron issue is fixed and it doesn’t break anything else. The last upgrade to 2.9 broke my cron and kstats.

    Anyone having issues with sidebar widgets disappearing or “wigging” out in 2.9? At first I thought it was just a specific non-2.9 plugin but I have found that in some multi-column themes that my widgets are getting all gummed up at intermittent times. (i.e. closing the edit box for a specific widget and then the widgets assigned to the far right of 3 columns being duplicated and replacing those assigned to the left 2 columns)

    Any thoughts?

    Works like a charm :)

    This certainly resolves some of the problems I was having earlier. That said, it doesn’t seem as snappy as 2.9, now. Perhaps this is the result of having “working code” :P
