Am I right in thinking that 2.1.5 does not have backward compatibility with 2.0.x versions, so it is not possible to directly upgrade a 2.0.x to 2.1.x?
It should be possible, but it's not something I've tested in a very long tim.e
I was certainly unable to take lists to 2.1.5 when I tried recently on full system upgrade - I ended up recreating the lists with significant pain involved.
Can you provide details? I consider it a bug that lists cannot be upgrade from 2.0.13 to 2.1.6. You might need to upgrade from 2.0.x where x < 13, to 2.0.13 first though.
This is 9 months ago... so my memory is not as good as it should be. However if I remember rightly it was down to features that were added during the 2.1.x series with a related change in database format.
You can do 2.0.13 -> 2.1.x where x <= 3 (from memory), but not direct to 2.1.5
[This is probably worth looking at because I see a significant number of sites still on 2.0.x unfortunately].
