I think the Tryton community would probably be a better channel to ask:

Yes they were released, but so buggy the users made a fun with them,

and No Tryton doesn't do so. Tryton has rewritten the kernel and

implemented the component-base upgrade approach which deals with data

formats and xml data. Upgrade is tested as a core feature and for

every additional module and This is how upgrade process is fully

automated on Tryton.

When you upgrade Tryton, you don't run external scripts to re-format

the database.

Yes, I agree, this is the rule of proprietary software.

The customer should be informed of this since the beginning, because

there is no surprise in this.
