WordPress version 2.1

I have to move my sister's site from here to here as I don't want to pay for the domain name.

The drill of moving content between sites using WP-dbManager didn't work so I had to use XML export and import. Site5 also provided one click install for WP 2.0.6 only therefore I upgraded my installation to 2.0.7 manually.

What I have done was of bad timing. WP version 2.1 just released yesterday. One of the new feature is '...The lossless XML import and export makes it easy for you to move your content between WordPress blogs....'.

I have a few blogs still running not so up-to-date versions of WordPress I guess I'll wait until my host offers one click upgrade using fantastico. I'll also watch comments about stability of this new version as I saw people hitting brick wall when moving up to 2.0.5. Also 2.0.7 was released only 10 days after 2.0.6.....so I'll be cautious.
