add_action( 'init', create_function( '$a', "remove_action( 'init', 'wp_version_check' );" ), 2 );
add_filter( 'pre_option_update_core', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) );

# 2.8 to 3.0:
remove_action( 'wp_version_check', 'wp_version_check' );
remove_action( 'admin_init', '_maybe_update_core' );
add_filter( 'pre_transient_update_core', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) );

# 3.0:
add_filter( 'pre_site_transient_update_core', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) );
