Hmm what's the best (easiest) approach if I'd like to upgrade to the latest version of the sourcecode?
From what I can see using winmerge there's quite a few changes here and there also numerous filename changes

What files do I need to preserve if I delete everything on my host and reupload?
I am using the mySQL provider

web.config is obvious :)
I have added some data to a "text widget"

Thanks in advance /Peter

I think these Upgrade Instructions are the simplest way to upgrade ... from either the RC to the latest build, or from 1.6 to the latest build, etc.

Ok thanks
One question: Can we expect to have changes in the database structure before final release?

I did as stated in the upgrade instructions, no hazzle at all.
One thing to be aware of: It looks like the file web.config has changed between 2.0.0.17 and 2.0.0.31

There's about zero chance that the DB structure will change.

That's true about the web.config file.  It changed in 2.0.0.20, as well as another change before 2.0.0.20 (after the 2.0.0.0 RC).  It's important to use the new web.config file since it includes some security changes.  Thanks....
