I updated the blog today, upgrading the WordPress installation from 1.5.2 to 2.1.2. I was waiting until it had been out in the wild for awhile before I switched. I think it was worth waiting for this version.

Some of the new features include an autosave feature, updated post editor, faster and more efficient page loads, and everyone’s favourite Web 2.0 buzzword, AJAX!

So if you’re on the fence about upgrading, don’t sweat it, just follow the upgrade guide at WordPress. And whatever you do, do not skip the backup steps!
