Since Responsify WP (RWP) was published on wordpress.org this summer, I’ve released eight updates to the plugin. Most of them was minor bugfixes and improvments, but there has been a couple of larger updates. The latest one, version 1.6, is the largest and greatest.
Now when your plugin finally has been uploaded to wordpress.org, you’ll eventually want to update it. That’s what I’m going to explain how to do in this second post about publishing and updating a WordPress plugin.
