Clarity PPMCumulative Patch Summary
Because patches are cumulative, when you install a single patch, it includes all the fixes in all previous patches, keeping you up-to-date.
Clarity PPM Base Release
Jaspersoft 6.2.1 was released as a patch. Jaspersoft 6.4.2 was a maintenance release; however, if you already had 6.2.1 installed, you experienced 6.4.2 as if it were a patch.
Upgrading to Jaspersoft 7.1?
You might perceive a same-database upgrade from 6.4.2 to 7.1 as if it were a relatively minor patch update. However, if you are upgrading from an older release, plan your migration to Jaspersoft 7.1 as if it were a full release upgrade. For example, when upgrading from 6.2.1, you will have to make
two hops, first to 6.4.2 and then to 7.1.
