I will preface this by saying I've only tested this on one blog and there could be issues with just that blog, so feedback from community would be welcome to legitimize this ticket. I will attempt to do further testing tonight when I have some time.

An upgrade from WP 2.3.x to WP 2.5-beta 1 causes page permalinks to no longer work. Regenerating the permalinks fixed the problem. As part of the upgrade process, we should be ensuring that rewrite rules remain valid.

Permalinks for single pages did not break.

Upgrade does $wp_rewrite->flush_rules(); that "should" take care of it. Page rewrite tules for 2.5 changed for certain permalink structures. Maybe something broke there. What's your permalink structre and what are some sample broken page URIs.

The permalink structure was Date and Time based - one of the WP defaults.

An example of one page that _was_ broke is http://technosailor.com/blog/

As mentioned though, it's not broke anymore b/c I regenned permalinks. The problem was consistent across all page URLs.

technosailor, is it possible for you to set up a testing env with your db backup to recreate the issue? I fear that other much less tech savvy will only encounter this after release, and have difficulty resolving it.
