    We currently have a couple sites running on 3.5, and there are some issues we want to resolve through upgrading to the newest version, 3.7 SP2.  Do we have to apply every upgrade and hotfix between these two versions, one at a time, or is there a more direct route we can take to get to 3.7 SP2?  We also have a site that appears to already be on 3.6 SP2, so can this just go directly to 3.7 SP2?

    Thanks,
    Orion

    Hi Orion,

    You can proceed with upgrade from 3.5 to 3.7 SP2 directly. There are customers that upgrade their projects from 3.1 to 3.7 SP2. Note that in 3.7 SP2 we use embedded templates, so you have to map the external templates right after the upgrade and customize them. There are no critical changes in the architecture between 3.6 SP2 and 3.7 SP2, only bug fixes and you should not have any problems if you decide to upgrade this project.

    Sincerely yours,

    When you say we'll have to "map external templates," what does that include exactly?  Does this mean for every news view control, poll, etc., we have to update them to use another template?  Does this effect the Master page templates we have the sites using?

    Thanks,
    Orion
