This is a security release with the same fixes as WordPress 2.8.6 plus quite a few MU specific bug fixes too.

Please upgrade as soon as you can.

It’s great they fixed the bugs of the previous version.
@Branedy, actually, it’s not a good opening not working when released :), may be you’d better wait a little bit, try later.

Automatic upgrades worked fine for me on several sites, all on the same server, up until 2.8.6 then not. Something has changed though I don’t know what. I’m guessing a server setting.

If anyone comes across a possible answer, I’d be happy to hear it.

Auto-upgrade worked fine.

One question though; is “site admin” > “upgrade” obsolete? I see that both of my two blogs (one BuddyPress, one not) on this MUWP install went to 2.8.6 without using “You can upgrade all the blogs on your site…”

Oh, and thanks! (much)

That upgrade message was necessary in the last upgrade because it removed slashes from blog options and site options tables. It’s done now so no need for it the message!

It’s not obsolete though as sometimes blogs do need to be upgraded.
