Sitefinity releases new versions, major or minor, every quarter. Newer versions can include hotfixes, bug fixes or new features. To take advantage of new versions, an upgrade is usually required. There’s a misconception that an upgrade simply entails uploading the new Sitefinity license, but that is not the case. Upgrading involves updating the newer versions of the Sitefinity libraries, configurations, and database as well. Following a specific process makes the upgrade more predictable and successful.
