1. You can now update to Fabrik 3.5.1. As always, please back up your site prior to updating and if possible test in a dev environment first.

General Questions regarding SVN Updates

    I have been performing SVN updates on my site since the early days of Fabrik 2 (pre SVN 1000). I am about to upgrade from SVN 2055 to the latest SVN.

    I have never upgraded using the RC1 or RC2 code - only SVNs - and I am concerned that if there were any DB schema changes along the way - I want to ensure that I have those in place - and only performing SVN updates wont correct that issue.

    Do you feel like performing SVN updates alone is the correct path?
    Or should I update to the latest RC, then perform SVN updates?

    Many thanks!

    There have been no db schema changes for a long time, so updating the SVN is fine.
    The only semi recent (20th feb 2009) thing I can think of is that we have added a table for logging.
    You can always do a diff between your current installs
    /administrator/components/com_fabrik/installation/queries.sql and that found in the SVN to see if there are any changes
    in addition keep an eye on the code announcements board (http://fabrikar.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=92) as its here where we post any info about changes to fabrik that might effect existing installations:
