WordPress.com Momentary Outage on 15 April 2014

A momentary outage was observed with WordPress.com and websites hosted through their service. For a few minutes, the site was unavailable.

This may be related to some updating that’s been done recently across the entire WordPress platform (including self hosted sites). In recent days self hosted sites are being updated automatically to version 3.8.3 to “fix a small but unfortunate bug in the WordPress 3.8.2 security release.”
