Hello everybody,

I would like to start building a complex website using magento (including for its CMS features), but since it’s not a production version I would like to upgrade it easily when it becomes more stable.
So, could you tell me whether it is simple to either upgrade directly or to export the configuration and templates I’ll have built?

Thank you a lot for your advice,

Erwin

To ensure stable API after stable release we are introducing many important changes to API before the stable release, so the upgrade process might not be straightforward during versions before 1.0

That said, it doesn’t look like the file structure will change, and if you write your customizations in correct manner (not overwriting core files, but keeping them in separate modules and theme folders), the upgrade process should involve minor changes, that will be even easier when API reference will be published.

Thank you ! I will try to do my best then, and I’m long to discover the first stable release.
