I’m reluctant to keep pace with ever upgrade that comes out. I’d prefer to update once or twice a year unless there is some critical bug fixed and we need to upgrade to fix it.
With said we are running 10.1.04 It seems to run well. 10.2 came out and not all the add-ons say they are compatible with 10.2 specifically so we waited. Now I see 10.3 is in alpha.
When we use the manual upgrade process can we upgrade from 10.1 to 10.3 without having upgraded to 10.2 when 10.3 is made available as stable release?

i think this answer could be valid here:
This is a very common question.
The standard answer to this is that you need to go through every single X.Y release and run the upgrades in between.
But you’re a little bit lucky as there is an exception as you’re on >9.1 because of this:
That means that you can at least go directly to 10.2.1 and from there you should be able to go to 10.3 But when 10.3. is finally released I would double check if it is still possible to directly upgrade there.
Here is the documentation on ho…

Understood. I should run every update without skipping when I get to the point of wanting to apply a particular version.

i don’t think that is true. If i’m understanding the previous linked comment correctly you can update from 10.1.0 to e.g. 10.3.0 directly. The assumption seems to be true when checking the version.php which was previously mentioned for the latest 10.3.0 testing release:
// We only can count up. The 4. digit is only for the internal patchlevel to trigger DB upgrades
// between betas, final and RCs. This is _not_ the public version number. Reset minor/patchlevel
// when updating major/minor version number.
$OC_Version = [10, 3, 0, 2];
// The human readable string
$OC_VersionString = '10.3.0 alpha2';
$OC_VersionCanBeUpgradedFrom = [[8, 2, 11],[9, 0, 9],[9, 1]];
// The ownCloud channel
$OC_Channel = 'git';
// The build number
$OC_Build = '';
// Vendor of this package
$vendor = 'owncloud';
The “not skipping versions” seems to me for version < 8.2.11 and all 9.0+ version < 9.0.9/< 9.1.

Thanks for pointing that out for me. I think we will wait and make a copy of the site to test the upgrade process with.
