Step 2 - Upgrade JA Teline V template to latest version. You should compare the changes before upgrading. We only pay attention to conflicted files - files that have been modified by both user and developer. When upgrading, the conflicted files will be overridden by files in new version, that means what you customized in the files will be lost.
