Package Magic

jl_package_magic - v9.1.0 - resources v9.3.10*

ConcreteCMS Marketplace v9.0.16

9.1.0  - Package Magic is now self contained and Package Magic Starter is discontinued. Any Package Magic Starter functionality is now provided directly by Package Magic. As such, PM starter and PM v9.1.0 cannot coexist. A simple in-place update will break your site!

The simplest update process is to uninstall all Package Magic family addons in the reverse order of installation. Then manually install Package Magic v9.1.0. 

Alternatively, for an in-place update, you can follow this convoluted procedure:

  1. Uninstall all Package Magic extensions such as Package Magic PRB.
  2. Uninstall Package Magic
  3. Use PM Starter to upload the new version of Package Magic - but do not install yet!
  4. Uninstall Package Magic Starter
  5. Install Package Magic
