Genesis Theme Framework – version 1.0.1 is now available and we are very happy with the first week of our launch. Our beta period proved to iron out most (if not all) of the obvious bugs. Most of the things that have been put into version 1.0.1 are just additional features, and updating to this version is a breeze.
Before You Update to Genesis v1.0.1
It’s always advisable to make a backup of your current /genesis/ directory just to be safe. You can simply rename it /genesis_10/ and then upload the new /genesis/ directory – that way in the event something goes wrong, you still have your working directory.
How to Update to Genesis v1.0.1
Assuming you haven’t made any changes to the core Genesis files, updating to the latest version of the Genesis Theme Framework is very easy. On your server, simply replace the /genesis/ directory in your /wp-content/themes/ directory on your server, with the new one. In other words, you will be replacing the entire Genesis parent theme folder with the new v1.0.1 version. This is the main reason we’ve encouraged everyone to make changes through the child theme, as updating the Genesis Theme Framework is THAT easy.
