    I was hoping I could migrate a project that used the improved prefabs in the standalone distribution of 2018.2 improved prefabs to a 2018.3 project but am getting an error message.

    Failed to add default packages to project:
    'projectVersion' parameter is invalid:
    '2018.2.0x-ImprovedPrefabs' is not a valid unity version

    Yes, it is possible!

    One thing you can do currently is open the projectVersion.txt file and change 2018.2.0x-ImprovedPrefabs to 2018.3.0b1 and then open the project! It might cause a reimport and packages will likely need to be upgraded/updated.

    Edit: And obviously, in the future, change the end version number of 2018.3.x to whatever the latest beta/release is. :D

    *Might* cause a reimport? I thought that was mandatory, even between b1 and b2?
