     1. b states: Open your project in Visual studio, remove references to the removed .dll files and add references to the added .dll files.

    Am I correct that the .dll are not removed in our own solutions automatically and should removed by us manually along with the references?

    Hi Markus,

    Thanks for bringing this up.

    Yes, the Project Manager never removes dlls, as we assume they might be used somewhere in your custom code, so you can remove them manually when you adjust the references.

    Dear Boyan

    Thanks's for clearing this up. The new update path to the newest version is such a timesaver and helps me keeping more sites up to date.

    It might be an idea to add the line, that the project manager does not remove any .dll and the client might want to remove them manually.

    Hello Markus,

    Yes, thanks a lot for the tip, we have applied this change to the upgrade guide:

  5. NOTE: The Sitefinity Project Manager does not remove any .dll files - it only adds the new ones. Thus, if you have referenced the old .dll files anywhere in your solution, the upgrade will not break your customizations. If you want to remove the .dll files, you must do this this manually after making sure the .dll files are not used anywhere in your project.

    Dear Boyan

    Very well phrased. Thanks for making the update process even a bit more fool proof :-)
