Holding off on WordPress 3.3

Although WordPress 3.3 does have a slew of new, neat features, smoother back-end navigation and an improved media uploader among them, I’ve decided to stay on the reliable ol’ 3.2 for the time being — I’ll let others test the 3.3 waters for me before I take the leap myself. While most have updated to 3.3 without any hitches, some have complained about plugins breaking. While that in itself should be resolvable, a broken theme would spell disaster, especially for a publication like El Estoque; WooThemes’, well, themes seem fairly compatible with 3.3, although some are facing issues with the media uploader.

WordPress 3.3.1, released just today, did fix some 15 bugs and resolved a security issue, but I’ll wait until the dust settles before upgrading just to be safe.

Update (Feb. 20, 11:03 a.m.): I’ve updated both elestoque.org and this blog to WordPress 3.3.1, and everything is running smoothly, no hiccups whatsoever.
