OpenViX 5.0 is based on the OE-Alliance v4.0 core. You cannot perform an online update if you are currently on OpenViX 4.x or older.
You can download and then flash the newer images using the USB method or simply by using Image Manager.
You can restore settings and plugins from OpenViX 4.2 series images after you have flashed the image. This will restore most things to how you had them before.
RESTORE PROCESS WILL NOT RESTORE PLUGINS THAT ARE NOT ON THE CURRENT PLUGIN SERVER. THESE MUST BE INSTALLED MANUALLY.

****** change log system. Change log is clearer and info is read directly from GitHub api.
Multi-stream support (this requires multistream capable hardware, for e.g.: TBS USB Tuners, SF4008).

Recordings take priority over streaming to clients.
