Simplest Way to Upgrade WordPress

I’ve long known of this method of upgrading WordPress, but thought I’d publicize it for those who don’t, especially in the light of the recent release of a new version. The easiest and fastest way to upgrade WordPress is to upload only the files that have changed since the previous version. It really makes things so much easier. The difference between versions is only a few files, so just uploading those alone is preferable to uploading the whole kit and kaboodle. For me, the trick has always been to find the list of changed files, which has not been easy, but it seems that the list is placed in a consistent place that is easy to locate.

Of course, since this blog is hosted on WordPress.com, I don’t have to upgrade the blog software at all.
