But 4 4.1 4.2 and 4.3 are not separate distributions, but are just points in
time that the upstream provider released a non- security related update. Then
new ISO's are spun at this point to shorten fresh install times, and to
incorporate fixes or drivers into the install media. 4 updated to 4.3 is
functionally equivalent to a fresh install of 4.3.
