I suggest we post any quirks here so that the next people who upgrade are forewarned = forearmed :)

Format:
Short Description
Status: Unconfirmed / Erratic (behaviour doesn't happen consistently and cannot be repeated on purpose) / Consistant (always happen when you do XYZ)
Description: Obvious, I think ;)

Here's one:

Unused Text Widgets lose their contents upon Upgrading
Status: Unconfirmed (currently on the bug list)
Description:

When you have information in a text widget, the content will remain stored even if you remove the widget from the sidebar. In the beta, however, text widgets which aren't active will lose their content.

If you have any text widgets you might reuse later on, make sure you copy / paste their content to somewhere else before you upgrade.

Just a head's up for those who may not be aware: 2.5 has been delayed until at least March 17 as the devs clean up some bugs and a few style issues.

Wouldn't it just be hell if Blizz released 2.4 on that following Tuesday as well?

Automatic Plugin Upgrade Feature
Status: Confirmed (2.5 RC1)
Description:
- Several existing plugins, in particular database-tied plugins, require a deactivation prior to upgrading, the automated mechanism doesn't do that
- Some plugins require specific actions taken in your theme files or even WP files to work, the auto updater cannot do it
- Some plugins are currently not yet placed in a proper directory structure which is compatible with the autoupdater.

http://www.blogherald.com/2008/03/18/wo ... -problems/

If you bork your installation with a plugin and don't know how to debug it, simply rename the plugin folder through FTP, it will get deactivated that way.

TinyMCE Advanced

Status: Buggy, Wordpress 2.5

Description:

The new version of TinyMCE Advanced does work with 2.5. However it's buggy. Nothing breaks but you may have difficulty rearranging your toolbars and getting access to some advanced features especially if you reset TinyMCE Advanced when you disable your plugins for the upgrade.
