Dear Peter "Excalibur",

If you want to upgrade from F6 to F11 without losing data and settings, 
you'll need to go through upgrading to F7 to F8 to F9...etc. Skipping 
releases may cause conflicts. If you want to skip releases and go 
straight to F11, I would suggest performing a clean install and backing 
up your data.
