How do I update Ultimento from 2.x to 3.x?

NOTE: The instructions below are for updating the version of Ultimento you are currently on from Ultimento 2.x to 3.x. Ultimento 3 is a major update from 2.x and can not be installed over 2.x. You must fully uninstall Ultimento 2 on your current store and then you can install Ultimento 3. 

Other version upgrades will have slightly different instructions. 

Ultimento evolves all the time and each new release brings exciting new improvements, ensures your product is compatible with the latest stable Magento version and remains bug free. Here’s the ins and outs of the update process.
