    Just a suggestion for upcoming releases of MUWP, is the admin side have a way so we can click on a link and the site will automatically download any updates and install them!

    I think functionality like this depends on regular Wordpress development. And it looks like 2.7 has "Automatic Upgrade of Wordpress" listed as a feature.

    ... which may or may not make it into MU, given the links & process would be different.

    I believe Donncha said before he thought an auto-update for MU would be a bad idea. that was partly because development is on a different schedule as well.

    So while I really don't know officially, I don't think it would be a good thing overall, and if it was included, it would have to be re-done.

    This would be really nice - but I wonder if it's practical. Given all the things that can go wonky in an auto-upgrade, and that a WPMU install inherently has more layers going on.... it may not be worth the risk.

    Just a thought!

    Laziness rules the world :) Or it doesn't? ;)

    How much time will you save if you had auto-update button? 5 minutes every 1-2 months? :)

    I'd vote for no auto-update and an option to turn of the message that a newer version is available.

    AFAIK, auto-update won't be happening and there's a filter around the update message -which is only shown to Site Admins anyway.

    good stuff, thanks everyone. i would love to see the auto-update as an option. the more i use WPMU, the more i see the lack of need for hacks. it just causes more problems and work in the long run. if there isn't a plugin to fix your problem, write it and don't hack. just a thought.
