What this means for Silicon Dales maintenance clients
We’ll be rolling your site onto this version (after testing your features in staging) this week, most likely tomorrow (Tuesday 6 February 2018).
What this means for WordPress webmasters
You should update your WordPress version, after backing up (of course!) as soon as is practical.
What that means for us
It meant we just updated. Everything was fine. The sky is still above us, and the earth below our feet.
What this means for cats named Roger
Not a lot. Unless that cat happens to own, manage or maintain a WordPress based website, of course. Also, I wanted to close with a joke. Not sure if it was funny or not… leave a comment!
