I did a fresh install of Wordpress 5.8 -> swtiched to CP 1.2 -> switched to 1.3 rc2.

I noticed it gave me an error message on the Astra-theme when installing CP.
Switched to a default theme, switch to CP, upgrade to 1.2 and after that ran the swtich to 1.3 rc2 again no issues found.

After that activated Astra again and no issues at all. Haven’t tested the Astra theme completely but looked like it’s working.


Can I use the “built-in update mechanism” on my rc1 site that is “warning” me to update?

From slack:

[MattyRob] I had a live site on RC1 and the RC2 showed as an update. Not sure if that is supposed to happen. Update applied fine though and all looks good.
[James Nylen] Yes, updates between RC versions is normal

So yeah you should be good :+1:
