    Yeah just wondering why they are coming out so quickly. It seems like 2.6.5 was just released. I just upgraded though to 2.7 and its a lot different.

    Have your themes gotten corrupted in any way after the upgrade?

    No I have done on two blogs, one by manual upgrade and other by using plugin. Both time worked fine for me.

    I used the manual method on both. It's just as easy / quick.

    I just upgraded to 2.7. :) It's going to take me a while to adjust to this new admin panel.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    I upgraded my test blog and it went well but when I try to change the theme, and the java thing loads up what my theme will look like, it only shows my current theme and no matter what one I click on it only shows my current theme.

    I get no errors.

    EDIT: I've just deleted all my themes and uploaded a new one and it is still showing the theme that I deleted!

    I also used the WP automatic upgrade plugin. It was a flawless transition, even with an older theme.

    Yes, that's what I'm having difficulties adjusting to. I like it a lot, but I'm just so used to the 2.6.5 interface that it's going to be a while. :(

    Yeah, I definitely want to get used to it, it will just take a little time to adjust. I'm actually finding myself getting through it just fine, so maybe it won't be as long as I thought. :p

    True! :D

    When you guys are upgrading/updating, do you ever get a no need to update database message; or a message similar sounding to that?
    Just wondering.
