WordPress 4.6 has been released.
As with all major updates, I won’t be upgrading immediately, as there are no security changes in this new version (and security updates to the older 4.5 version will still be rolled out).
Although it’s getting much better, major updates do pose a few risks – there’s always the potential that they’ll break a plugin or theme, and minor updates are often released in the week or two following a major update. For that reason I won’t be updating your site just yet, and you shouldn’t click the update button either – for all client sites I’ll be doing some testing, full backups, and taking it fairly slowly just to make sure there’s no interruption to service.
If your site is still in development, it will be launched with the newest version of WordPress in place.
