Caution and Issues

WARNING: Broken release. Major bug creates redundant cron jobs

NextGEN Gallery 2.0.0 contained substantial changes to the plugin structure over the Legacy versions 1.9.x. NextGEN 2.0.23 builds on those changes, but if you are updating directly from 1.9.13 or earlier, there may be incompatibilities some third-party plugins/extension including mobile apps. If you update and have issues, you can always roll back to 1.9.13 following our rollback guide.

You should, as always but more so, consider back up your site (both server files & MySQL Database).
