In addition to what Tim W said, you can also keep a Qubes RC-2 install, and update normally to RC-3 and RC-4, simply by updating dom0 and templates, like you normally do, nothing special to do here. But I do recommend you read each release cycle news, as the developers sometimes have special notes on this issue as they began doing in Qubes 4 RC-X releases. For example RC-3 to RC-4 has some notes. But yes, RC-2 to RC-3, RC-3 to RC-4, and RC-2 to RC-4, should all be good paths to take. But stay clear of RC-1, the developers recommend a re-install between RC-1 and RC-2. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
