Upgrading to Iron Speed Designer Version 9.0

Applications created with earlier versions of Iron Speed Designer will be converted automatically to Version 9.0 with these caveats:

Iron Speed Designer's Migration Wizard will migrate many of your code customizations. However, code customizations written for Versions 1.X, 2.X and 3.X require migration by hand.
The Version 9.0 code customization model is the same as Version 4.0 and later. No code customization changes are required for applications built in Versions 4.X, 5.X, 6.X, V7.X and V8.X.

Please see Application Migration for instructions on how to migrate applications created with earlier versions of Iron Speed Designer.
