The usual upgrading procedure applies. No database updates are necessary.

Breaking Change

With the newly released TYPO3 versions, the description field of the filelink content element is HTML encoded by default. If you allowed editors to enter HTML code in this field, you may want to add the following line to your TypoScript template, before updating.

tt_content.uploads.20.itemRendering.20.2.htmlSpecialChars = 0

Allowing HTML in this field is discouraged for editors, same as allowing the plain HTML content.
