> Create one or more upgrade guides to help users transition between Pivot releases
> ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: PIVOT-643
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-643
>             Project: Pivot
>          Issue Type: Task
>         Environment: n/a
>            Reporter: Chris Bartlett
>            Assignee: Greg Brown
>             Fix For: 2.0
> I view a 1.5.1 to 2.0 guide as a necessity, but we could also have a 1.5 to 1.5.1 one.
> The guides might take the form of a publicly editable section on the wiki, or a more
static guide on http://pivot.apache.org (hopefully updated if more issues come to light)
> One way of addressing this would be to take the example, demo & tutorial source from
the prior release (1.5.x) and attempt to build it against the new release (2.0).  This would
hopefully uncover most of the issues that users might face due to changes between the versions.
> Where possible, each 'issue' would be documented with a description of how it manifests
(compilation error, runtime exception, silent), how to fix and other related issues.
> We can also suggest an ordered series of steps to be followed in order to try to reduce
the potential volume of requests on the user mailing list.  (Run the wtkx -> bxml sconversion
script, address issue x before issue y, then a, b & c ...)
> For skin styles, creation of a simple table of what has been renamed, removed & added
in this release might suffice, with a note if the functionality has changed.
