Re: UPGRADING .

Good question. I don't think so usually. But they usually supply a reader file that would tell you if a big version upgrade required special preparation.

Re: UPGRADING .

Your operating system?
In general you can just upgrade (or install in parallel if you like so).
The actual settings will be preserved.

Re: UPGRADING .

Just get the 4.4.0 and install - you will be asked if you want to install in parallel and preserve the old version. Your choice...
