Does this need a fresh DB ?

Hi Peter,

Release 1.0 comes loaded with certified content, including a sample workflow and a template policy sample.

It will encompass everything that came with 0.8 clean database, so you can deploy 1.0 and start using it immediately.

You can also restore a 0.8 backup on 1.0, but if you would check "upgrade pre-canned content" you may have to make

some adjustments to the workflows created in 0.8.

I hope that helps,
