New WordPress 3.3 is just around the corner, and no matter how good new version will be, in the next couple of months less than 15% of all WordPress websites will upgrade to 3.3. And if you look to the past versions of WordPress, you will see that adoption rate looks pretty bad.
The post focuses on WordPress from the plug-in developer point of view, asking the broad question re should developers support older versions of WP when developing plug-ins.
But the numbers are interesting, showing that too many users don’t feel compelled to upgrade to the latest version. Is it a communication issue, ie, on the benefits of upgrading? Is it features, ie, some users don’t think it worth upgrading?
Should be interesting to see what happens when 3.3 is released, coming very soon.
Excellent post, btw.
[…] The biggest contributor to all this data is video, which is expected to be 50% of consumer Internet traffic by the end of 2012. Most of that traffic is coming from North America and Europe today, but don’t expect that to last. And by 2015, it’s expected that the bulk of that traffic will come from wireless devices.

The way of the future? If you have compelling, accessible content, offered at the right price, people will come to you no matter where or how you offer it.
