Upgrading from 1.0 Beta to 1.0.2

Notice: If you are upgrading from 1.0 Beta 4 or earlier, Hot Property 1.0.2 includes a complete revamped of front-end's output. If you have customized layout in Hot Property 1.0 Beta 4 or earlier, your template customization will be removed during the upgrade and replaced with the new one.

For users who has done extensive changes on Hot Property 1.0 Beta 4 or earlier, performing this upgrade will require you to re-do all the changes with the new layout in Hot Property 1.0.2. We do not recommend you to upgrade if your site is running on a production website and do not wish to redo all the template customization. If you're planning to proceed with this upgrade, it's strongly advised to stage the upgrade first on localhost before doing it on the actual production website.
