    How to upgrade an existing property editor?

    Hi all,

    What's the recommended way to upgrade a "simple" package you've installed via the package manager (i.e., the Packages tree in Umbraco)?

    E.g.: A property editor with a JS, CSS, manifest and maybe a PropertyEditor ValueConverter C# file.

    Do I install the new version "on top"? Or do I need to crack open the ZIP and manually overwrite the files in ~/App_Plugins/ (with a potential ClientDependency rabbit-hole of hard-refreshes to follow)?

    I'm guessing an "uninstall first" step would wreak havoc on existing properties using that property editor (?), so not going to try that...

    Thanks!
    Chriztian

    hi Chriztian,

    Just installing the new version using the package manager should do the trick.

    Aah - brilliant.

    (There used to be an "Upgrade" option in older versions...)

    Thanks Dave!

    That would be very old versoins. I have a v4 one running and don't see that option.

    I mostly use nuget. But for my own developed packages I test them as well using the package installer. I always just install the latest version on top of the previous one. Works fine.
