Finally took some personal play time and installed the upgrade to my blog engine app.    The upgrade went surprisingly smooth.   I expected it to blow up the blog, blow up my site or blow up both.

In reality the only error I ever got was the missing theme files.   I had forgotten to copy over the custom theme I was using from the previous install.  Aside from that one minor issue, I can honestly say the upgrade process was smooth and painless.

I think I like the new version.  The admin side/dashboard is vastly improved.  I think it’ll be a good improvement over the v 1.6 I’ve been running for so long.
