I found the biggest obstacle to upgrading from Spree v.1.1.4 was that a
large number
of my overrides were broken in the head section and other places due to
styling changes.

I forked spree, and made a patch, branch 1-3-patch
that basically dumps the new scss and puts the old one back in
for v.1.1.14.

This solved most of my problems, except having to make the file

add_products_decorator_helper.rb

in app/controllers

which has the following:

[Spree::UserPasswordsController,
Spree::UserRegistrationsController,
Spree::StaticContentController,
Spree::UserSessionsController].each do |klass|
klass.class_eval do
helper 'spree/products'
end
end

Above due to the spree/products helper not available for some reason.

One other change to look out for is that the table

spree_creditcards

was changed to

spree_credit_cards

There is a migration for this, but it does not get touched if
you already have the table spree_addresses.

I just did a manual rename and everything works fine


Also in this patch I changed Alexey's fine new Admin so that the colors
are higher contrast---no major tweaking just darkened up a couple of
critical
colors so they are easier to view. I had a client immediately complain
about the low contrast colors being difficult to read.

Here is link to the patch:

https://github.com/bluehandtalking/spree/tree/1-3-patch

So you can fork this, or figure out how to incorporate those changes

Hope this is helpful for people doing this migrating, and if others have
done the
migration perhaps they could leave there tips in this thread to benefit
everyone.

Cheers,

Jet
