question about custom templates after upgrade to 1.0.1

#1
Can someone help me understand...
.....after upgrading to 1.0.1 ,should I revert outdated custom templates or save?

Do i need to go manually and place customization every time new XF (with moded templates) will be released?

Moved to general support.

If templates are showing as outdated then ideally, yes, you need to revert them and reapply any edits.

What are outdated templates and why do I need to revert them? Can't I just continue using the old ones?
If a template is changed between releases, i.e. from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1, and you have manually edited it, then it will be marked as outdated. This is done because the software doesn't automatically overwrite those templates, thereby causing certain functionality which you have added to be lost. It is an indication that the core code has changed and you need to take action. The software will continue to function with these outdated templates but you may be missing important updates and bug fixes so it is recommended to revert and reapply any edits.

Templates marked with a * contain important changes that should be integrated into your own installation if you have previously customized those templates. This should be done by reverting changes, or manually merging differences.
