WordPress auto-updates itself

Having spent years dutifully upgrading to the next secure version of WordPress using the famous 3 (or 4) step upgrade, it’s good to see that from now on it will happen automagically.

I see this dialog in my admin interface.


I click on “upgrade automatically” and I am done!


No more download zip, extract onto server, replace files, preserve the .htaccess file and the wp-content folder etc.
