Major Highlights in v3.7.8:

  • Fixed issue where new tag appears in the tag cloud immediately event if the post is scheduled to publish in the future time.
  • Code refactoring & performance optimization.
  • Other small fixes & customizations.

As with any release, we recommend you perform a complete file and database backup before performing any upgrade on a production website and that you first conduct a trial upgrade on a staging version of the site. Following these guidelines will ensure that you are able to recover should any unforeseen problems arise during the upgrade process.

Note that some issues may occur in the upgrade process if you've developed your customized theme. Just refer to the tutorial - A Quick Note for Enhanced and Fixed Version - SunBlogNuke 3.7.x and follow the instructions. Another possible issue may like the post mentioned - Windows Live Writer failure. Hope it makes sense.
