Updating does not affect your live theme

When you download the latest version of Broadcast, you'll be able to continue running your current theme and also setup the new version as an unpublished draft theme. This allows you to safely continue running your shop without any interruption. The tips above will help you copy over your settings information from your current theme to make the migration easier. Once you've setup the new theme and ready to publish it, you can do so and your old them will still be available for reference.
