Question:
Do I need to apply all other upgrades before applying the latest upgrades ?

Since all the Typhon upgrades are cumulative, you don't need to apply the previous upgrades. It's sufficient to apply the latest upgrades as being displayed in the menu Services and Updates.


Question:
With the import tool I can import very easily users, but can it also be used for mass deletion of users and groups ?
Answer:

At this stage the import tool can only be used for easily importing and configuring users and groups. In future versions a users & group management tool will be developed which will allow to delete "en masse" users and groups in order to allow for easy user & group maintenance.
