Important: If you are on Linux, one additional step is necessary, which is not mentioned in the upgrade article from the Wiki. Please delete the existing /jre32 or /jre64 sub-directory in the installation directory before unpacking the new contents from the .tar.gz there as we ship a new different JRE now. Furthermore we do not longer support 32-bit OS for PowerFolder Server.
