Tonight I decided to upgrade this blog to the latest and greatest version of WordPress. I originally went down the path of following the upgrade instructions when I realized that it was kind of crazy to do so when there is the option of using Subversion. The problem with the traditional upgrade is that it requires you to manually copy a lot of files over from the old install like any of your plugins, themes, uploads, etc. By using the Subversion option I can now update to the latest stable version of WordPress by running a single svn command. I like that a lot better.
