We are running a dash fork (version and now thinking about updating to, because of the security and bug fixes.

I've checked the release notes for all versions, and implements a lot of new DIPs and features.

Are there any obvious problems that might occur regarding this update?
What would be a good stratedy for performing this update?

And then start with step 1 and finish with step 2
It is highly recommended to first read at least the list of changes before continuing in order to familiarize yourself with the new concepts in DIP003. This documentation describes the upgrade procedure in two steps:

  1. Update the masternode software
  2. Register the DIP003 masternode
Step 1 should be done immediately as soon as Dash 0.13.0 is released. Once miners have updated and DIP003 has activated on the network, it will become possible to complete Step 2 and register a DIP003 masternode. After enough masternodes have completed this step, Spork 15 will be enabled and all new network functions will take effect.
Dont forget to add your BLS secret key in your dash.conf file on your masternode and possibly on your local masternode wallet.
