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.
