Kentico 7 support
As I informed you in my previous blog post
, we are extending support for Kentico 7 in terms of hotfixes until the end of July, 2014. However, this upgrade package is only supported for Kentico instances with hotfix version 7.0.85 or previous versions. You CANNOT perform the upgrade after applying hotfix 7.0.86 or more recent versions. In this case, you need to wait for the updated upgrade, which will be released after the final hotfix version for Kentico 7.
