One of the most anticipated new features with WordPress 2.7 is the new core update feature which will automatically update your WordPress installation, removing the tedious process of installing the software yourself or waiting for Fantastico to update with the latest version of WordPress. 

However, this new feature is not necessarily compatible with every web host, so it looks like the WordPress community has created a very nice list of Web Hosts that the Core Update Feature is Compatible With.   It probably won’t affect whether you upgrade or not, but you can check this list to confirm your web host is included.

    Not sure if you’ve already suggested this but I keep a subdomain on my site just for testing stuff like this. It’s a pretty accurate mirror of my main site. I just upgrade the subdomain first. If it works then bonus. If not then I may have just saved myself a panic attack. :)
