Thanks Miami

SP for any stable release. WP as you see fit normally, I discuss that with Denis as well.

Right now SP is compatible with WP 3.0.1 and WP 2.9.2 so you have the choice. The memo on WP is "3.x only if you need it". That's how I take it for my own and client sites as well. Have been doing good with it so far.

Keep in mind that WP 3.0.x might be incompatible licensed with some plugins and themes it was compatible to before 3.0.0/3.0.1 and will be compatible again after the next release - be it 3.0.2 or 3.1.0 .

Short version of what Hakre said: :-)

  1. Check http://www.semiologic.com for WP release notes.
  2. As a rule, always upgrade your theme and plugins.

I'd like to stress the importance of that second point:

  • My Version Checker plugin ensures that my theme and plugins are only offered as upgrades when they're compatible with your current version of WP; and
  • I do my best on my end to make sure my theme and plugins with with the latest and the previous versions of WP (i.e. 2.9.x and 3.0.x at the time of writing).
