Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress, announced this morning that version 2.2 of WordPress is available. This is very welcome news indeed, because among the other things it includes is “A new Blogger importer that is able to handle the latest version of Google’s Blogger product and seamlessly import posts and comments without any user interaction beyond entering your login.” As soon as the upgrade becomes available on Dreamhost in its one-click installs, I’ll be upgrading this installation to 2.2 so that I can import the almost 2 and a half years of posts and comments from my Blogger version of this blog into this installation so that all my blogging can appear in this one spot. Thank you, Matt and the whole WordPress team, for all your excellent work and effort.
Update: Well, the deed is now done. I’ve upgraded to version 2.2 and imported all my previous posts from Blogger, successfully it appears.
