 +**Important Exception:​** Due to the sudden and unexpected release of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8 GB, NEMS Linux 1.5.2, while a point release, is in fact a major upgrade. Therefore, you will need to follow the Major Release Upgrade Instructions if you choose to deploy NEMS Linux 1.5.2. This is because the bootloader on the new board has changed from previous versions, so a rolling upgrade is not possible.
  
 A rolling release is a second decimal point release, and rolling upgrades are available within each major release as made available. Rolling releases are usually pushed out in order to fix bugs or improve features. An example of a rolling release would be going from NEMS Linux 1.2 to 1.2.1, or 1.2.1 to 1.2.3. Once a new NEMS Linux major release is available, it is recommended to perform a major release upgrade to ensure you have the latest and greatest NEMS Linux has to offer. A rolling release is a second decimal point release, and rolling upgrades are available within each major release as made available.
