Do NOT attempt to update if your Support & Updates service has expired prior to the release date! See this release note for the full details.

Refer to this page for more information on our version number schema, and specifically what we mean when we say that this is a "Maintenance Release".

Who Should Update
This update is recommended for all users.

Code modifications: As always, if you have any PHP code modifications, to update you will need to re-apply those changes after you update, and custom code modifications are not supported in the helpdesk system. Keep this in mind when deciding whether you want to update or not.

Addon Developers: Be sure to check out the developer-oriented "changes to note" geared toward external Addon developers, see changes to note in the developer section of the wiki for that.

Template FILE modifications: I'm referring to using a custom template set with changes to system or module templates, located in the geo_templates/ directory, not changes to the main templates. For such modifications, see the changelogs as they will list every change. Make sure to look at the changelog for all versions between the one you are updating from and the latest version, as you will need to apply those changes to any templates you have customized. Also follow the updating tips in Customizing System or Module Templates for the smoothest update possible when there are customized system/module templates at stake.

High traffic sites For high traffic sites, it is recommended to first test the update on a test location, so that the update on the live site is as seamless as possible.
