MT Upgrade == No Markdown

I upgraded my Movable Type installation from version 3.2 to version 3.31 yesterday. For some reasons, the upgrade killed Markdown and Smartypants. I’m anal about typography so that was unacceptable. So I downgraded back to version 3.2 and I got my curly quotes/comma and dashing dashes back. Yay! Happiness! :)

  1. Smartypants didn’t work, either. I decided to just downgrade back to 3.2 and now everything is working beautifully again. :)

  2. I’ve heard nothing but bad things about experiences upgrading, so I’m wondering what the point is.
    Are there noticable changes in any way (apart from things breaking)?

  3. I do have the latest versions. Markdown and SmartyPants just didn’t work on the pre-upgrade entries, not even after a rebuild.
