Upgrade to WordPress 2.8 Now!

The latest version of WordPress, version 2.8 “Baker” (named in honor of noted trumpeter and vocalist Chet Baker), has been released on Wednesday, 10 June, 2009 as scheduled. It has several improvements to themes, widgets, taxonomies, and overall speed along with over 790 bugs fixed.

Visually 2.8 doesn’t look much different from 2.7, however once you start digging dip, you’ll notice and begin to appreciate the changes.

PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT – WordPress Upgradation Problem

Recently I was asked by a client of mine to upgrade her self-hosted WordPress blog to 2.71. from 2.6. I though it to be a smooth task as this was a pretty new installation without any plugins or themes and I had upgraded at least 10 other self hosted WordPress blogs (far bigger than this one) few days back without any problem. I logged on to the blog’s dashboard and upgrade warning from WordPress was flashing on the screen. I gladly clicked on upgrade button and thought the task is taken care of. But what the hell!!!!
