Upgrading

You ought to perform the following steps:

  1. Download the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux)) from the direct download links in this thread or from the official website. If you run active AV (AntiVirus) software, I’d recommend to apply this guide -> https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/10798/my-antivirus-av-software-blocks-quarantines-the-monero-gui-wallet-is-there
  2. Extract the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux) you just downloaded) to a new directory / folder of your liking.
  3. Open monero-wallet-gui. It should automatically load your “old” wallet.

If, for some reason, the GUI doesn’t automatically load your old wallet, you can open it as follows:

[1] On the second page of the wizard (first page is language selection) choose Open a wallet from file

[2] Now select your initial / original wallet. Note that, by default, the wallet files are located in Documents\Monero\<wallet-name> (Windows), Users/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Mac OS X), or home/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Linux).

Lastly, note that a blockchain resync is not needed, i.e., it will simply pick up where it left off.
