    Hi,

    I know most projects are bound to the a specific version of Unity, and there is always a risk when upgrading to a new Unity version.

    BUT, it could be nice to have the possibility, that you can to set auto update to the newest minor release, bug fix release etc., instead of having to install it manually.

    For some cases, it would make sense for the major releases too, but I think that is for the minority that would benefit from this.

    Since every upgrade carries the risk to render your project unusable or very hard to fix, I wouldn't make auto upgrade available. There will be a ton of people who just mindlessly turn it on and then carpet-bomb the support with requests that auto-upgrade broke their projects.

    Do your upgrades after backup with this risk in mind and ready to roll back. Never update mindlessly, not even minor version. You're risking your project.
