Hi,

Do you think you could put by each point on the update list which applies to the Community++ version like you did in the past?

I see I can upgrade to this but I would like to know what will affect my version as I think most will probably be for the education/commercial editions, thanks.

I just wanted to see what benefit I would have updating to the com++ version and what changes to my version. I don't need to upgrade.
