When using the Software Update feature in settings and attempting to update 8.0.1 1788 to 9.0.0 (builds 6524, 6552, others), an error is encountered:
"Installed OpenXT version: 8.0.0
Latest OpenXT version 9.0.0
It is not possible to update to this version of OpenXT"
Workaround is to change 8.0.0 to 8.0.1 within xenclient.conf to allow the install to continue.
OpenXT 8.0.1 1788
Install OpenXT release 8.0.1 1788

Can we just add 8.0.0 to the stable-9 UPGRADEABLE_RELEASES? Is there a particular reason it is omitted?
Yes, but this would leave 9.0.0 upgrade path include two versions of TBoot. It should not be a problem since almost all 8.0.0 -> 9.0.0 upgrade would be in fact 8.0.1 -> 9.0.0. Creating a step 8.0.2 would make sure of that, but again, if that is not a problem for known derivatives, I am fine with 8.0.0 -> 9.0.0 to work-around this problem.
normally I think we have users get to the latest stable-8 build before upgrading to stable-9, but from a technical perspective nothing should be blocking an upgrade from 8.0.0 if we add it to stable-9's UPGRADEABLE_RELEASES.
So either Eric cuts the 8.0.2 release or we add 8.0.0 to UPGRADEABLE_RELEASES. I'll leave it up to Eric.
Okay, thank for the info.
OXT 8.0.0 successfully upgraded to 9.0.0. Closing.
