How often do we miss out on the little things? The sprinkles, or the spit and polish?

I was asked to take a look at a project recently, one that had been shelved a few months before. After opening Visual Studio and the project, I was presented with the following:

I smiled, I love the fact that without me having to go off and find the upgrade wizard (which is still available under the DevExpress menu) I am reminded that the project is not running the latest libraries.

A couple of quick clicks later and my project is up to date. Just as important, I may not want to upgrade, so I like being put in control, given the choice, but gently reminded that Project-X is not on the latest version.

Over the years I have had very little trouble running upgrades between versions, and certainly the minor (or service releases) updates are seamless.

It is however worth checking out the 'Breaking Changes' link after you install the latest version to ensure there are no surprises :)
