I just received word today that the latest version of Fantastico has been shipped out. The good news is, Fantastico now supports WordPress 2.3.1. Originally, WordPress 2.3 was the version everyone has been looking for and I wondered if Netenberg was going to hold off on the update because of 2.3.1. That doesn’t seem to be the case.
Now all you need is for your webhosting provider to upgrade their Cpanel/Fantastico scripts and then you should be able to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress.
