Errors in Upgrading WordPress 2.8 bleeding-edge

I just tested to upgrade one of my site to WordPress 2.8 , since it was released yesterday, and after automatic installation of WordPress 2.8 bleeding-edge I have received the following errors

Fatal error: Call to undefined method WordPress_Module::_weak_escape() in /mnt/local/home/XXX/XXX/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 487

I just changes some text to XXX for security purpose , and after making some googling I found that the errors is being caused by my Redirection Plug-in. So to those who will Upgrade automatically be sure to disable redirection plug-in before proceeding or if by mistake you did not disable the Redirection Plugin you just have to go to your hosting FTP and delete redirection plug-in, but ofcourse all your automatic redirects will not work if you do this, So better think twice before doing upgarde if you use redirection just a sugestion

    Gah. I had the redirection plugin active and did the auto install. Now what? Pulling it from the directory just screws up my redirects and gives me more errors. How to I get it to stop kicking up errors?

    Redirection plug-in has been updated already, so make sure to grab the latest release.

    @Vic, i’m afraid there won’t be any WordPress 2.8.1 anymore ( i hope so, unless there’s a show stopper like security flaws, etc. ), i may be wrong but according to the developers they’re already doing the 2.9 version.

    Hi Dexter,

    Thanks a lot for posting this information. I did not not know that WordPress already released 2.8 version. It’s a good thing to try it first with your trial domain to test its effectiveness. I also prefer to wait wait for 2.8.1 for the more secured version of WordPress 2.8.
