Special Note for 1.7.x, 1.8.x & 1.9.x Ops Manager Deployments
The 1.7.x, 1.8.x and 1.9.x release line of Ops Manager includes a new feature that allows tile stemcells to “float”, which will allow Operators to update their Ops Manager deployment once rather than installing all new Services product releases. If you upgrade one Service tile in Ops Manager 1.7.x, 1.8.x or 1.9.x with the newly released stemcell, all tiles will automatically upgrade. For more information about the floating stemcell feature, refer to this document.
