I had a weird experience when accidentally updating to v9. I should explain how someone accidentally updates...i had two versions displaying and i didnt realise the significance of v9 until i had finished updating.

Anyway, i went through all the usual update tasks for both new versions. When i finished doing v9, nothing changed at all. None of v9's new features appeared and i cant work out whats happened. In fact i'm even wondering if i fell asleep and had another ocP related dream lol.

I reset my browsers cache, and the sites cache. I have had numerous other people view the site from their computers and everything looks exactly the same as it did before.

Its currently displaying v8.1.3 and offering v9 as an update in my AdminZone. The only error i've noticed is not being able to access the Edit tab from the user profile page...although its been ages since i tried to do it that way so it could be totally unrelated.

Am i going mental?

Sounds like a classic case of upgrade anxiety to me.

See two upgrade choices, knowing one is the riskier choice.

Click on a choice and proceed through the steps.

Halfway through you begin to worry "Oh crap, did I accidentally choose v9? I did didn't I……. damn, I'm gonna have a mess on my hands when this is done.

Upgrade is done. No mess. And not v9. Now you begin to doubt your sanity…

Ah… fun times….

Well i've not had any major problems since my fauxdate (get it? faux update…'get my coat).

So i can only conclude that this was a dream or my website decided that i did such a half arsed job at updating it that i didnt deserve the new features.

Either way, i think im gonna avoid v9 for a bit :)
