    I've just announced WordPress MU 2.8.1. It's a security update but also brings with it lots of bug fixes and even a couple of new features.

    I would have written more in the post itself but it's late here and my eyes are closing. zzzzz

    I'm about to head there myself but I'll drop 2.8.1 in tomorrow morning before I head off to a beer festival ;-)

    Hello I just upgraded the site to 2.8.1 from 2.7 After the upgrade through dashboard it showed upgrade successful and prompted to login again. I did and then came the nag The Upgrade to 2.8.1, that I had just upgraded to. I looked at the bottom and on left I found 'thanks for creating with 2.8.1' while on right bottom its showing 'get 2.8.1'
    using the link at the top I clicked to upgrade and it said Upgrade failed :(

    What is this?

    I got the same results on two of my Wordress MU installations both were at 2.7.1 before this upgrade.

    That didn't happen in with the Beta, so it seems odd its happening now.

    Please keep new issues to new threads, and go file a trac ticket if there isn't one already.

    Ticket for the "upgrade notice" issue is 1037. I've just checked in code to fix this. Please see the ticket for further info.

    @donncha Just fyi, I replaced the wp-includes/wpmu-functions.php file with the updated version (http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/changeset/1867) but am still getting the "You are using WordPress MU 2.8.1 ... Update to 2.8.1" problem.

    Let me know if you need additional information from my set-up to track down the problem.

    Thanks for the help.

    I also should add that the WP plugins are doing the same thing. e.g. Akismet says I'm running 2.2.5 but right below says a new version is available and a link to "View version 2.2.5 Details"

    (All of my plugins are deactivated though while I worked on the WPMU 2.8.1 upgrade)

    Psychictoad - you need wp-includes/functions.php too. Does that help?

    Sorry to say that it doesn't Donncha, but oddly enough when I replaced that and went to the plugins panel it told me that it wasn't visible to normal users unless I activated it??

    So I activated it but nothing I do seems to want to get it to recognise the upgraded plugins.

    Sergei pointed out that the 2.8 branch didn't have the bugfix. I've just synced it and trunk so try again. It will work!

    Doesn't seem to want to clear the plugin problem though.

    That was the two files from changeset r1868

    Doesn't seem to have done, and I've checked the the two files have the changes in.

    Steve - ok, well can you debug it then?

    Look for the string "update_plugins" in your source code, look in wp_sitemeta for the update_plugins record. Log when update_plugins is updated (set_transient() is the command).

    I'm looking into it, is there any significance that the last_checked field seems to contain an old date?

    Actually its even odder than I originally thought.

    I have Scissors 1.2 installed and WPMU is telling me that a new version 1.1.9 is available

    For some reason the wrong update_plugins is being read then. Check your blog's options table. Might be there?

    no update_plugins in the options table for that blog, there is a _transient_update_plugins which contains the same incorrect information.
