Upgrade 4.0 to 4.2

Upgrade 4.0 to 4.2

  
Hello,

We currently have an application running on version 4.0 of the Outsystems Platform and wish to upgrade to 4.2. What's the correct, or best, way to go about doing that? Are 4.0 applications compatible with 4.2? Will the installation of 4.2 automatically upgrade our 4.0 eSpaces?
Thanks,
Robert
Dear Robert,


Before proceeding with the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.2, you should check the breaking changes document from 4.0 to 4.1, and 4.1 to 4.2.

These documents will give you an overview of the introduced breaking changes, so that you can understand if any of them impacts your applications. If your applications only use standard functionality of the Agile Platform, these breaking changes should not affect you and the upgrade will be seamless. However, if you used advanced functionality (such as custom C# code that uses the internals of the Agile Platform), then take a look at the documents:


Hope this helps,

Cheers,
It should probably be pretty painless for us to upgrade. Also, is there a document somewhere that explains what advantages 4.2 has over previous versions?
Thanks,
Robert
Absolutely Robert,


The following documents overview the releases main goals, their new features and their advantages:

Hope this helps. Cheers,
