Upgrade from 7 to 7.1 - any database changes?



I've updated the local development version of my site from 7 to 7.1 via the built in admin tool, and everything works great.
I'd like to now bring down the live database to have more up to date content.. 

Are there any database changes made during the upgrade process, or can I just bring the database down (the live site has not yet been upgraded)..

Also, can I just deploy the upgrade EpiServer dlls to staging then live to upgrade those sites?

There are no db updates between 7 and 7.1 so it should be no problem to update your dev environment with a copy of the production db.

When updating the staging environement I would just run the updates in that environement from the addon store instead of doing it manually.

Thanks, I'll try that now.

regarding upgrading, would you suggest running updates from addon store for the Live environment? or just copy the dlls?s

I would do it through the addon store in productipn as well.
