One of the new features that is coming to WordPress 2.7 is upgrades and install via SFTP. I was just complaining to Uzyn how hard it is to upgrade WordPress due to the requirement for FTP in plugin upgrades. It didn’t make sense to me for FTP is needed.
I didn’t even install FTP on my server so I can’t take advantage of the plugin upgrades. I guess when 2.7 is released, I’ll be first to upgrade.
WordPress 2.7 also added the feature to upgrade itself. This is going to be my favorite feature. Upgrading WordPress is most tiring.
