I want to upgrade my site from Drupal 6 to the latest version of Drupal 7. Currently I have version Drupal 6.21 for my site and there are other releases available 6.22 - 6.29 so I need to upgrade first to 6.29 or I can directly upgrade to Drupal 6.37 which is the latest version in Drupal 6? Also after having latest Drupal 6 version can I then upgrade directly to 7.41 or I need to do it in steps like 1-4?
Is it necessary to update core and modules first to the latest version of Drupal 6, before upgrading to Drupal 7, or can I directly upgrade to Drupal 7? I read a few articles on this, but I didn't get it.
