The new WP version updating process is very easy, simple and straight forward, after you login to your wordpress back office, you will see an alert message on top of your dashboard:
After you click on the “Update Now” link, it brings you to the update page, there are two ways to update – automatically, or download it and update it manually. I would suggest you to just go for the automatically update, it only takes you few second to get all the work done. But do remember to backup your data first before you click on that ‘update automatically’:
This release features:
- A lightning fast redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to your existing posts and pages,
