WordPress Software Upgrade scheduled for 4/27, 10am

We will be upgrading the software that runs this site to WordPress Mu 2.7.1 on April 27th from 10am to 11am.

WordPress 2.7.1 offers a streamlined management interface that has been fairly well received. Here’s a good overview of the changes. Here’s another one.

We don’t really have a choice – we have to upgrade sooner rather than later. We wanted to make you aware now of the upcoming change, because soon how you manage your blog will look completely different. All the terminology is the same – you manage pages and posts, you “categorize” or “tag” things, etc. You’ll just find tools in different places in the administrative backend.

Thanks for your patience! We don’t expect a significant amount of downtime, and we won’t have the same performance issues we had in our recent switch.
