Hi Yuri,

I will make updates to this page when the production release of 3.4.2 is 
made available (to refer to 3.4.2 rather than 3.4.1).  I will also look 
to add a "new dependencies" sub-section to the pre-upgrade section to 
advise on these as described in the 3.4.2 (and 3.4.1) release notes.  If 
I have the time, I will also see if I can improve the page more 
generally (i.e. layout, grammar, etc.).  I would refer people to the 
installation page for the appropriate OS on one of the following pages, 
if you are having problems upgrading:



As this contains additional information, in a particular OS version 
specific issuess.  I will add these links to the upgrade page at the 
same time I make the other changes I have just proposed.
