The upgrade to WordPress 3.8.1 this morning went smoothly. I also activated a Princeton variant of the Twenty Fourteen magazine-style theme. If you are experiencing any problems, please send a message to email@example.com.
Looking forward, the date for the WordPress 3.9 has been set for April 15, and tentative dates for the 4.0 and 4.1 releases are mid-August and early December, respectively. If WordPress development proceeds as scheduled, that means deploying 3.9 the week after Reunions, then 4.0 right before the students come back.
