Upgrading To The Current Version of UBB.threads 7
The upgrade path from UBB.threads 7.5.x versions continues to be to move to the most recent version of UBB.threads as they become available. Such as 7.5.6 => 7.7.1 There is no need to do an incremental update from 7.5.8 to 7.5.9 to 7.6.0 to 7.6.1...etc. You should update directly from your current UBB.threads 7 version, to the most recent version of UBB.threads.
The UBB.threads 7 Upgrade Guide
can be found in the Docs
tab in the menu header.
Take note; if you are upgrading from a version prior to the last version, incrementally follow the special instructions listed within /install/UPGRADE_INSTRUCTIONS.txt, from each version just above the version you are coming from. Normally there are no special instructions or they explain a new feature for you to configure.Special Upgrade Instructions for 7.7.1
