I had an issue from upgrading from 6.0-42 to 7.1-28b where I was stuck on the EULA screen. I had to rollback so upgrade to 7.0 first instead!

We identified that the upgrade path for versions prior to 7.0-10 will need to first upgrade to 7.0-10 before moving forward to subsequent releases.

I see KEMP rolled back 7.2.x and discourages the use...

Why isn't this document maintained with each firmware release? The links to 7.1.35.3 are dead links, and I have to make the assumption that the new upgrade path for 7.2.x is via 7.1.35.4.
