The purpose of this document is to provide general notes for upgrading from Minivend 3 to Minivend 4, and from Minivend 4 to Interchange.

By saying "Interchange", we primarily mean the early releases, such as 4.6 or 4.8. To be sure you did not miss anything while upgrading to Interchange 5.0 and beyond, please review WHATSNEW entries.

This Guide will be slowly losing on relevance, and users running Interchange 5.0 or later should monitor WHATSNEW entries for upgrade information.
