    The installation of WordPress 3.7. has broken my Graphene theme in the visual editor for images that possess a caption.

    The following is a picture of the visual WP editor that contains a picture with a caption. The picture is shown as a grey coloured block.

    The HTML code for the concerned picture in the middle is the following:

    I restored a backup and went back to WP 3.6.1.

    So far I will not move again to WP 3.7.

    This seems to be a bug in WordPress 3.7, which has been fixed in WordPress 3.7.1. Simply update your WordPress version to the latest version.

    seems that WordPress is not tested before a new release and only real bloggers test it. Wonder how many bugs version 3.7.1 contains.

    Since I restored a 3.6. backup, I will stay on this version. It makes sense to wait some weeks before upgrading.

    This worries me too

    Has anyone found a way of turning off automatic updates until we can be certain the version of WordPress is ok?

    WordPress undergoes numerous tests before new versions are released. However, every WordPress installation is unique, so it is impossible to catch every single issue that may arise. We always recommend that you set up a test installation, either on your own server (preferably) or in a localhost install, to test out new software before you go live.

    I have no idea what you mean by “real bloggers”. Many large corporations and organizations use WP as a CMS: http://wordpress.org/showcase/tag/fortune-500/

    That said, you can always get involved with the WordPress community and test out new versions ahead of time. That will allow developers an opportunity to catch issues that may be unique to your installation. http://make.wordpress.org/

    Keep in mind that by not upgrading, you are leaving your site vulnerable to hackers.

    You can’t guarantee that it is entirely “ok”, because every server set up and WP installation is unique. However, if you have FTP access to your site, you can control automatic updates like this:
