    Hello everyone, we're pushing our 2.0.2 updates out today. Once you receive the email you'll be able to download it immediately with an active license via your license area.

    This is a minor style release that brings it up-to-date with XenForo 2.0.2 along with some new features and all the bugs fixed from the initial launch. You must upgrade your forum to at least 2.0.2 to install this update.

    BEFORE UPGRADING:
    As always backup your current styles before importing the new version. Export your current styles WITHOUT checking the box "Export as independent style". You should be exporting:
    • Parent Style (this would be the purchased style such as Core, Flat Awesome + etc)
    • Your child style with your edits

    UPGRADING:
    To upgrade simply import your purchased style (e.g Core, Flat Awesome + etc) overwriting your existing version. All changes will trickle down to your child style. DO NOT overwrite your child style.

    COMMON PROBLEMS AND TROUBLESHOOTING:

    If you have problems or questions prior to upgrading please don't hesitate to start a support ticket or post in our customer support forum.

    Do the files need to be overwritten too?

    Files will never really change, there's no need to upload the folder unless we instruct you too.

    Will there be an update to styles with 2.0.3 having come out? Both Fusion Gamer and Omni have several outdated templates atm, and they will not merge using the built-in utility. (So far as I've observed in my Admin CP, anyway.)

    To update flatawesome to 2.0.4 do I just use the XML file? Above it suggest I don't need any of the files, right?

    As per the launch thread:
    For XF2 upgrades you'll need to upload the new included qtip folder found in your download inside your style folder.

    We'll get better at documenting this kind of stuff.
