Small upgrades needed?

Is it necessary to do small upgrades, for instance from 1.9.2 to 1.9.3 as I've just done, or can I wait for example to do 1.8 to 1.9?

    I would recommend to do especially the small upgrades as well - often it's easier to upgrade from e.g. 1.8.999 to 1.9 as it is from e.g. 1.8.000 to 1.9. Beside that, there are not really small upgrades - every update usually almost contains new features, bugs and security fixes.
  • It's what I guessed, so thanks for clarifying that.
  • Very welcome, again ;)
  • Generally new features are intended to be introduced in new first and second octets.
    So things like 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 2.0, 2.1, etc would have new feature sets added.
    Where anything that's got a third or fourth octet are usually bug fixes, security patches, etc. (so like 1.8.1 or 1.8.1.1 or 1.9.1 or 1.9.3).  Occasionally they break their own release schema, but generally speaking Chefkeks is right (or right enough so as to not worth mentioning).  Or at least this is what they intend to move towards.
