It is important that every Magento Online Store Owner need to confirm the extension is compatible with this latest release. Please take the time to download the new version, test the extension, and make any necessary updates. Also, Be sure to review the upgrade instructions posted in the Knowledge Base before starting.

Once it is confirmed that the code is compatible, update the extension profile on Magento Connect and upload the new version (if it is a free extension with updates), so that merchants know that the code supports Magento Community Edition
