Auto-update to 2.8.1-RC1 not working properly

I did the auto-update on my test install to go from 2.8.1-beta2 to 
2.8.1-RC1. When the update is complete, I get the successful update 
message, but the dashboard still says that I have 2.8.1-beta2.

I've checked via FTP and the files on the server show today's date and 
time that I did the auto-update. I did open version.php, and it shows 
the following:

<snip>
$wp_version = '2.8.1-beta2';

<snip>
$wp_db_version = 11548;

<snip>
$tinymce_version = '3241-1141';

<snip>
$manifest_version = '20090616';

My test install has been able to grab the latest updates for the 
2.8.1-xxx up to this point. Shouldn't the auto-update be grabbing the 
RC1 update as well, since that would be the latest nightly build?

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: Auto-update to 2.8.1-RC1 not working properly

This is what happens for me:

1. Upgrade from 2.8.1-beta2 successful.
2. Go to another admin page -> get the Upgrade to 2.8 nag
3. Refresh -> still on 2.8.1-beta2

It seems no. 2 is caused by the WordPress Beta Tester plugin. Once I
deactivated it, I didn't get the nag after trying to upgrade.

But i'm still on beta2.

Same here. I just ended up doing the manual update on the four blogs  
we run.

Re: Auto-update to 2.8.1-RC1 not working properly

Might as well add me to the list. Auto upgrade from 2.8.1 beta 
2 on my two sites completed successfully but left me at 2.8.1 
beta 2 (in the footer and "version.php"). I didn't have the 
"nag" screen in either site though once the RC became 
available. Does Automattic have different servers for manually 
downloading purposes and auto-upgrading purposes? If so, 
perhaps 2.8.1 RC (for auto-upgrading) never made it to the 
correct server?

Just a thought

I figured I'd download the latest 2.8 nightly zip file
(http://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-2.8-latest.zip) to take
a look.  Seems as though the 2.8 nightly hasn't updated to rc1 yet as
version.php is still reporting 2.8.1-beta2 from that zip.

Re: Auto-update to 2.8.1-RC1 not working properly

Well, that certainly would explain why the auto-upgrade to RC1 
doesn't work. :-)

Re: Auto-update to 2.8.1-RC1 not working properly

Thanks Matt, that explains why all of us are still getting the beta2 
version instead of RC1.

/trunk/wp-includes/version.php still shows -beta2 in version.php, but 
/branch/2.8/wp-includes/version.php shows -RC1.

Perhaps someone forgot to bump the version in trunk when they did it for 
the branch version?
