Over the weekend, I spent some much needed time doing some maintenance work for my wife's photography site which runs on WordPress. One of the concerns I had with the release and automatic update of WordPress 3.8 is how it might impact the Photocrati theme package my wife uses for the site. So far, I haven't found any issues related to the WordPress 3.8 upgrade. I am a little concern we may have an issue with the Photocrati gallery not allowing her to add additional photos to a current gallery, but as far as I can tell this is a separate issue.

The following are the most significant features we found in WordPress 3.8:
Upgrades to WordPress 3.8 to current sites can be made automatic or through the "Updates" menu in your WordPress admin dashboard. WordPress 3.8 is also available for download from WordPress.org for those that needs a fresh install or prefer the "old school" school method of manually updating their website.
