    Updating Umbraco during development

    Hi, any recommendations on how to approach umbraco development when constant updates are being released? If I haven’t gotten very far with development should I just start from scratch or could I preserve the sql database and just start a new VS solution using the most up to date version of umbraco with the same database?

    For example, if I start a project a month ago with v8.5 but haven’t made any customization to the files, only additions to content in the sql database, and put the project on pause for a few weeks but now v8.6 is our, should I just start from scratch or can I just start a new project and copy the database into the new project running v8.6?

    You can just upgarde your existing project to new version, if you working with Nuget it is very simple procedure

    detailed instruction you can find https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Getting-Started/Setup/Upgrading/

    Hi, yes, but it is always a hassle when dealing with .config filed, etc. that I have changed. Could I just start a new project with the the updated umbraco but just use the same database and let the database update?

    You don't need start new project (techincally you can, but it make more deal with it), conifg files will be untouched or you can merge it in your IDE
