How to update

Important Note!

From version 3.0 are no longer versions 1.x supported. So even updates from so old versions are not supported anymore. I am very sorry. But it is a long time since version 1.1 and there were almost 100 new major changes in the code. So it is not possible to keep up to date all of it.
Thank you for understanding

Update 2.x to 2.x or to 3.x
