Upgrading from 8.1 to 8.5

Is this just an end-user/client upgrade? And nothing on server/edir?

Don't see anything in documentation, but install has some different folders.

Just verifying as we are about to go live and plan on installing 8.5. Testing with that version has been fine.

Re: Upgrading from 8.1 to 8.5

Yes it is mainly end-user/client changes.

There are no datastore changes for schema/access.

There are some additional preferences (Chrome enable;Chrome detect;Display user in taskbar) that may be set.
The iManager server plugins have been updated, to support fixes to older plugins the id has changed so will need to remove old and install new.
