With WordPress 3.7 steadily approaching the release candidate stage with a full release soon after, I thought it would be interesting to poll the audience to determine how you plan on configuring auto updates. There are a couple of things to keep in mind before participating in this poll. WordPress 3.7 and above will only perform automatic updates for security releases by default. Major releases, plugins, and theme upgrades will be disabled but can be configured via constants as explained in the following post. Considering the amount of discussion that took place in September and albeit, some confusion, I’m wondering if some of the opponents of automatic updates are now changing their minds, based on seeing the implementation.
