Before you upgrade from 3.6.1 or 11.0, you should take the following into consideration.
Standard publishing styles will be replaced during the upgrade. If you have customized publishing styles, please note the following:
If you plan to create custom publishing styles in any version, you should document your customization so you can easily re-apply them after you upgrade, if necessary.
Standard templates will be replaced during the upgrade. Any new custom templates that you created in 3.6.1, or 11.0 will work in the new version. However, we recommend that you perform a manual comparison of the old template and the new templates and re-apply any necessary changes.
The sound structure type was changed to .flv in 3.6.1, and the template sound is no longer used. Older sound files will not be converted. If you are upgrading from 3.6.1, there are no changes to sound files, and they should be preserved. Sound files exported from 3.6.1 or 11.0 can be imported into 11.1.
