Upgraded, works mostly

Just upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.7. The new admin looks fancy, haven’t really explored it yet. Things seem to work generally, but the hack I use to locate my feed at http://blog.grumet.net/rss.xml no longer works. Seems like WP really really wants my feed to live at /feed. So for now I advertise /rss.xml as the link, as before, but intercept the request with Apache before it hits WP, and 302 redirect to /feed. Update: The push toward /feed is coming from the Canonical URLs code, introduced in WP 2.3 and updated in 2.7. Update 2: Disallowing canonicalization is possible with a short local edit at the top of wp-includes/canonical.php. Done.
