I saw a link to upgrade. So I clicked it. It warned about backups and then displayed this:
- Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.zip.
- Unpacking the update.
- Verifying the unpacked files
- Installing the latest version
- Upgrading database
- WordPress upgraded successfully
Not even 5 seconds and done. Nice. It's not that upgrades were hard to do on SF, but still, compared to downloading a .zip, scp and ssh and unzipping, just clicking a button is easier :)
