    Hello folks

    First of all, my setup works well more than a year so I don't actually have a strong reason to upgrade my installation looking for new features

    But just in case if I need... what is a proper procedure to perform an upgrade on top of existing installation?

    Just in case of curiosity, my setup is Raspberry Pi 2 with Raspbian (jessie) and ws2812b connected via logic level converter

    If it's working - just leave it.

    At some point (soon I hope!) Hyperion.ng will be a reinstall so save your frustrations for then !

    Having said that, to upgrade Hyperion versions, I would :
    copy the config and any custom effects you have to a safe place
    Reinstall over the top
    Replace config and custom effects if they get trashed

    Never tried it myself tho
