#9139: Cannot upgrade manually anymore
 Reporter:  mastermind    |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  2.8

 Before the automatic upgrade feature, it was possible to upgrade WordPress
 by three simple steps:[[BR]]
 - Delete all WP directories/files except wp-content and wp-
 - Upload all the new directories/files except wp-content and wp-config-
 - Go to /wp-admin/upgrade.php.

 With the new upgrading system, there is the problem that WordPress doesn't
 seem to recognize the new version: After a manual upgrade, It keeps on
 printing "WordPress [latest version] is available! Please update now".
 This is annoying, of course.

 I hope you understand that there are scenarios which make it necessary to
 upgrade WordPress with other methods than the auto-upgrader.

 Solution: The function to print the upgrading message should have a look
 into /wp-includes/version.php before and respect the value of $wp_version.
