WordPress 3.3 is out. A lot of you are wondering what and when you’ll get the new hotness on your systems. Here’s the official answer.
1. It’ll take 7 days for us to start rolling out our automated updates, we want to make sure we don’t break your site, so testing is key.
2. You can skip the line, by upgrading yourself, but if it breaks your site, we’re going to restore your site from our nightly back up, not trouble shoot the upgrade.
3. Brand new sites, for existing customers and new ones, will be on WordPress 3.3 as of tonight.
In case you’re wondering why we’re not rushing the upgrade for all the customers, it’s simple. This is a feature upgrade, not a security upgrade. Means, it’s a major upgrade, but there is no compelling reason to upgrade, apart from “new shiny toys”. This means, your site is not at risk for running at 3.2.1.
