Re: upgrade question
Simple answer? No. You need to upgrade any override files that may have been changed so they contain the bug fixes and security upgrades too. That involves comparing the overrides to the updates core files.
but the template over ride files have not been compared, merged and upgraded too, is the cart still considered to be upgraded?
