Subject: 1.3.9 compatibility with forum, filemgmt, stats, staticpages

I am running 1.3.8rc2 and getting ready to upgrade to 1.3.9 when it is released.

Do I need to upgrade any of my plugins?

am running

staticpages 1.3
filemgmt 1.2
stats 1.3
forum 2.2

Is it recommended that I reinstall each plugin one by one, or can I simply copy the plugins directory from the old 1.3.8 install into the new 1.3.9 install?

Staticpages 1.4 comes with it.
Forum 2.3rc4 is compatible with it.
stats, and filemgmt have no conflict with 1.3.9.

There is an upgrade instrustion with the archive.

I wanted to be sure from the plugin authors that I was using the right versions of the plugins. is the GL release responsible for always ensuring backward compatibility with plugins?

I love geeklog and appreciate all your responsive posts, but i've found the upgrade process nerve-wracking in the past and want to make sure I don't bungle it this time. Sorry if I appeared to be a bit deaf!

I am sure it is always nerve-wracking to upgrade a live and very active site.

It is always wise to have a test site to upgrade before you upgrade the real site.

The release candidates such as 1.3.9RCx are released for general user testing and for plugin developers to test their plugins.

Usually a new GL release will not break anything in a plugin but may introduce new API's and features that plugin developers will want to use.

Users can also assist plugin developers with testing their plugins. Release Candidates should normally not be used in production sites but certainly hobby sites may want to use it right away. Always have a good backup anyways on hand.
