If you are using any pro-designed WP theme from StudioPress Genesis Theme Framework, by now, you should upgrade the Genesis framework to version 1.7. I just did it!
This new version refreshes the user interface to better fit the new user interface in WordPress 3.2. It has also undergone an extensive new round of security audits from Mark Jaquith, security expert and lead developer of WordPress.
Please note that Genesis 1.7 requires WordPress 3.2 and PHP 5.2.4 (or greater). And here are the specific changes made in this update.
* Genesis 1.7 REQUIRES WordPress 3.2 and PHP 5.2.4 to function properly
* Brand new settings UI fits better with the new UI in WordPress 3.2
* New sanitization class hardens settings security.
* Security audit by Mark Jaquith.
* Settings consolidation to make things a bit leaner.
* New visual layout selector.
* Lots of structural changes to make things easier to find.
* Lots of new code documentation to make things easier to read and understand.
* Better upgrade functions.
* Many CSS improvements.
* Added support for relative post dates in (post_date) shortcode.
* Added support for larger units of time (months/years) for (post_date).
During the upgrading process, if you have made any changes directly to files in the /genesis/ folder, upgrading will overwrite these changes. Therefore, NEVER make changes this way. Alternatively, use the CSS in the child theme folder to make stylistic modifications, and use the proper PHP files in the child theme folder, along with the Genesis Hook system, to make functional/output modifications.
there are two ways to help you get your upgrade done. One way is you can use the automatic upgrader from your WordPress admin dashboard.
1. Click the “upgrade now” link in the update notification at the top your your dashboard page.
2. Confirm the upgrade.
3. After the new version is installed, click the link to complete the upgrade.
The other way is to upgrade it manually.
1. Before you upgrade anything, make sure you have backup copies of your child theme.
2. Delete the old genesis folder from your wp-content/themes directory
3. Unzip and upload the new genesis folder to your wp-content/themes directory
4. Log into the dashboard to complete the upgrade process.
