MSDN has an extremely helpful new tutorial on the scenarios, tips, and pitfalls to watch for when updating your WP7 app to the 7.1 OS release. In case some of you were confused about the talk about Windows Phone 7.1 and 7.5, it's just a difference in the name of the OS and the release name.

There are three main scenarios that you have:

  1. You want to update an application written for Windows Phone OS 7.0 

  2. You want to update an application written for Windows Phone OS 7.1

  3. You want to update an application written for Windows Phone OS 7.0 to take advantage of new platform features introduced with Windows Phone OS 7.1 





Check out the full tutorial for several helpful tables, diagrams, and plenty of warnings that you'll need to heed.

P.S.  Once you've updated, you should think about entering this Mango App Challenge contest where you can win a new Mango phone.
