I used the WPAU (WordPress Automatic Update), found at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/ which lets you perform the upgrade from the UI (it’s not an unattended automatic upgrade, but rather Assisted upgrade). I am posting this using the QuickPress feature in 2.7. WPAU may not be good for you depending on what weird security features have been enabled …

Θα μιλήσουμε τώρα για ένα ακόμα γράμμα από τον κ. Γκέιτς για να προστεθούν χαρακτηριστικά στο BIOS των υπολογιστών ώστε να είναι δυσκολότερη η λειτουργία από τρίτα λειτουργικά συστήματα. Μπορείτε …

I have upgraded before using the WordPress Auto Updated plugin. After a few clicks, your blog is updated. It is so easy that it is hard to resist. I tried …

Code of conduct και ελληνικές κοινότητες ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ
