I finally got around to upgrading the software used by our humble blogging platform. I had to buy a new subscription to the plugin that we use to connect to the database, but that’s well worth it. We’re now running on the latest and greatest WordPress 3.5 (check out some of the awesome new features), as well as running on a fully updated Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS (dorkily named “Precise Pangolin”).

I’ll also be working on moving the service to an IT-hosted VM server sometime in 2013. The timing of that will be planned to cause the least disruption, so likely not until after the Winter 2013 semester…
