[PVE-User] Is it safe to upgrade from Proxmox-ve-2.6.18 to Proxmox-ve-2.6.35 at one shot?

Thank you for the input guys.

Jeremy, are you saying that 2.6.35 doesn't support OpenVZ containers? I can
only have KVMs?    ???

I do have a problem. I am tried installing Win 2008 server on 2.6.18 and it
gets stuck at "Loading files...."
I know this is fixed in newer versions.

Regards,
