  1. Thanks for the notification Jeff
    I’ll try it out on a few local sites and then go with the live versions.

    • We just recently updated the Tavern and nothing blew up! Check out the about page when you upgrade. It has a video and a working playlist.

      • Good to hear all went well.
        My first local install upgrade went like a dream but I’m not doing the happy dance just yet.

    • Hold your breath and count to 10 @Miroslav… that should be long enough.

      We usually get a security update pretty soon after major upgrades and I used to wait a few days before I upgraded in anticipation.
      These days I upgrade straight away.

      • I get core updates notifications from WPTavern faster than WPT

        I was having a discussion with some people on a roundtable thing about how many updates is too many updates.

        We were comparing PHPBB vs WordPress.

        If 3.9.1 comes out within the next 10 days, I will question why didn’t those issues were fixed at 3.9.0 release.

        Would you (Jeff, this question is for you too), be worried if there was a 3.9.1 in a week, week later 3.9.2., 3.9.3 3 weeks after 3.9.0 came out, and so forth? (3.9.x weekly release).

        I am all for “delaying” releases to make sure it is up to the great standards WordPress comes out. Quality vs. Quantity, I will always pick Quality.

        • Yes, that would be concerning. Those releases would have to contain security fixes or fix major bugs to be justified in my opinion. Sure, auto update is great but it doesn’t give the team a free pass to just keep pushing updates as they see fit.

  2. The upgrade was a dream on the local install and a hosted testing site. Sadly the one plugin I didn’t test fails and the live site uses it. Oops … Guess its an excuse to rearrange the Network :)

  3. Hi Jeff, we upgraded to 3.9 and now our visual editor has disappeared. Been searching all over for help – any advice? Steve

    • I’ve been in the support forums for most of the day, you’re not alone. Quite a few people have reported TinyMCE issues, including the editor disappearing. Please create a forum thread on the WordPress.org support forums with a detailed explanation of your problem.

  4. I upgraded to WordPress 3.9 and the only problem I have so far is the Twitter embed and the Meetup embed do not work. They worked for a few minutes and then went to just showing the URL. I had this problem back on 3.7.

  5. Now it’s almost imposible to wonder what’s coming in WordPress 4.0… I know it will be just another major update, but changing 3 to 4 always makes you think about something big… maybe some front editing related? The new API? Who knows…

    My visual editor didn’t disappear, but there are many functions that are missing, and the worst problem with it is that the preview and update buttons deactivate, and I can’t save my work! It looks like the editor is doing an auto save, and gets hung up. It’s not functional this way!
