    Yesterday Wordpress released a newer version called Wordpress 3.0.2. The fixed a moderate security flaw and also there are few bug fixes and security hardening done. Wordpress says it's a mandatory security update so it's time to upgrade our blog!

    Make sure your current theme and installed plugins supports the newer version. Its always recommended to take a backup before upgrading. If you encounter any problem after upgrade, you may need to roll back to previous version.

    My advice its dont upgrade yet give it a few days and check the plug-in support forums to see if the most important plug-ins are working with this new version! ;)

    Yes, you should be very careful while upgrading. I upgraded to latest version in one of my blogs and there is no compatibility issues. I have the below given plugins installed currently and it is working fine.
