I. Upgrading notes

This file lists changes that affect users who installed older versions of this software. When upgrading from an older version, be sure to check this file to see if you need to make changes to your system.


For packaging (OS distribution or in-house) it is recommended to primarily ./configure --with-all and then excise --without-something explicitly for items not supported on your platform, so you do not miss out on new NUT features as they come with new releases. Some may require that you update your build environment with new third-party dependencies, so a broken build of a new NUT release would let you know how to act.

This is a good time to point out that for stricter packaging systems, it may be beneficial to add --enable-option-checking=fatal to the ./configure command line, in order to quickly pick up any other removed option flags.
