This may sound silly but I have been asking myself this for a long time...
Imagine that 0.97.0 is release, that is, full-release.
Then imagine that after a couple of days we already have two updates, 0.97.2 and 0.97.4.
Now the real question is: can we just upgrade directly to 0.97.4 or do we need to first upgrade to 0.97.2 and only then to 0.97.4?
I have always loaded all the intermediate upgrades just to keep it on the safe side...
But occasionally it could save some minutes if I could patch it only with the latest upgrade and that's why I'm asking ;-).
