How can I know if my 1.6.1 magento theme will work on 1.6.2 or 1.7.0?

I have installed on 1.7.0 to try and it seems to work but I’m not sure all will work fine.

Any great advantages to 1.7.0 respect 1.6.1 (or 1.6.2) ?

Thankyou
Gus

it will work no matter what,
but you have to take care about your extensions and other custom features from 1.6.1.
make sure if they will work with new 1.7

Thankyou for answer, but… that’s the problem.

I have no idea about extensions or custom features.
I bought a theme I liked but I have no clue of how to check if it has those extensions or custom features.

Do 1.7 improve a lot of thins over 1.6.1?
Can I stay on 1.6.1? What about 1.6.2?

Thankyou for your time !!!
Gus

The 1.6 theme will surely work on Magento 1.7. However there may be some themes which need minor changes. Here are few Magento 1.7 Themes, if you want to download. We have tested all on 1.7 version.
