When a new version of TYPO3 is released, you should follow the guideline in this chapter in order to do an upgrade. Also follow any additional upgrade information carefully. You might e.g. want to skim the ChangeLog to see if any features affect the way your site works.
Version specific upgrade notes
While most of this chapter is a general guideline to follow for a TYPO3 Upgrade, some version specific information for upgrading to 8.7 is available. Use this as an amendment to the general upgrading instructions!
