TubeStudio is built from the ground up to be self upgradeable. From the support admin you have the ability to select the latest version and TubeStudio will then preform all the upgrade tasks in the background. While TubeStudio is upgrading you can continue to work in the admin and your sites continue to function.
Throughout the course of development from one release to the next we will occasionally release patch versions that will fix severe and critical bugs. You can always update to the latest release or patch version by visiting the Support Admin page. When choosing the version to upgrade to you will sometimes have two options:
- Upgrade to the latest stable version
- Upgrade to the latest released patch.
The latest patch will always contain recent bug fixes. Do to the rapid changing environment of the internet we are constantly adding new features to help you stay competitive and will pre-release them in the latest patches so an admin wishing for the cutting edge can take advantage of them if they choose to. However these features are usually not considered stable and fully tested until its included in the next release.
