    Upgrade GW6.5 to GW8.0

    Hi all,

    Can I upgrade directly, or must I upgrade to 7.x first, and then to 8.0?

    Thanks as always

    Yes. You can definitely upgrade directly from 5.5 or later to 8.0.
    Possibly even from 5.0-5.2.

    Wonderful. I suspected as much, but good to know for sure.

    Thanks Joe.

    Not even possibly. You can definitely upgrade directly from all version
    of 5.x or 6.x or 7.x to 8.0

    I couldn't remember if 5.0-5.2 could or not. Thanks Mike.

    Now, of course the probabiity of weirdnesses pre 6.0 are much higher. I
    would allocate much more time to the conversion and clean up of whacky
    issues for a 5.x upgrade. Lot more cruft there.
