 Just FYI, Instant Upgrade is available in
 [http://www.zirona.com/blog/software/instantupgrade-10-beta/ a new
 version], now also with FTP support and many other features. (A first
 alpha with FTP support had already been released in May 2007, but this
 beta is really mature. I think it will be released "final" soon.)

 Please also consider this plugin, when you think about inclusion of an
 automatic upgrading solution into the WP core.

 Regardless of which one will be taken; I also (like filisofo) have
 concerns about taking such a complex piece of software into the WP core.
 I've [http://www.zirona.com/blog/wissenswertes/a-few-words-about-the-
 instantupgrade-plugin/ written about this topic] a while ago (Note that
 the security-related statements in that entry refer to the old IU
 version). However, if the core developers want to include one, I wouldn't
 mind seeing mine being taken. ;)
