Re: upgrade from 1.2.0 to 1.2.4

You are correct that there have been no changes that require updating
the db schema, strings, etc.  We are trying very hard to avoid these
during the stable tree.

Thank you for pointing out the error in the UPGRADE file.  The
statement was misleading and I am clarifying it.  The statement was
designed to show the DB schema version connected to SQL-Ledger < 2.7.0
or LedgerSMB < 1.2.0.  My appologies.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers

I'd previously successfully installed version 1.2.0, and have recently

specifically INSTALL and UPGRADE, I have a few questions.

I'm assuming that I don't need to individually upgrade to 1.2.1, 1.2.2
and 1.2.3 before upgrading to 1.2.4.  Is this correct?

After reviewing the Changelog, it seems to me that there are no changes
to the database schema, and therefore the changes are only to the
various Perl and shell scripts.   If so, is the correct way to perform
the upgrade simply to untar the new version over the old version (after
of course backing up the old directory tree and backing up the
PostgreSQL database for good measure)?

Also, in the UPGRADE file, in section 3-c, the correct statement should be

    SELECT version();

rather than

    SELECT version FROM default;
