I've got 3.0 and therefore need to upgrade.

I note that 3.2 is not quite final release: I'd prefer not to install
3.1 only to consider 3.2 almost immediately afterwards.

Given the EOL for Qubes 3.0, is the recommended "upgrade to a newer
release before 2016-09-09" really recommending the 3.2 release
candidate?

Cheers,

Dave.

Unless some major bug will be found in R3.2-rc3 (which is unlikely), the
final R3.2 will be exactly the same as R3.2-rc3. So, yes - upgrading to
R3.2-rc3 seems as a reasonable step.

Thanks, that does indeed seem reasonable given the maturity of the 3.2
release candidate. Cheers :-)
