Got it on WordPress' Twitter status:
WordPress 2.8 "Baker" is now live to the world! http://bit.ly/wordpress28 (spread the good word)
- Go into your previously checked-out WordPress directory
svn switch -r 11549 http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/trunk/
- Navigate to http://yourblob/wp-admin/upgrade.php
Done! You are running WordPress 2.8! Of course some plugins and themes might not work but who cares. You are now using the latest and greatest :) Most new features are admin panel related, but the one that interests me the most is:
- Support timezones and automatic daylight savings time adjustment
Yes -- it's about time!
