We are getting ready to upgrade to version 6.5, but we are going to be unable to setup an exact test environment due to the way our system is setup. I would like to know if anyone else has upgraded to version 6.5 and if so, did you have any complications (big or small) or did everything go smoothly? I just want to prepare myself for any hiccups (again, big or small, but hopefully none) that we may have.

I upgraded last month and it just like the other updates I've done with Alloy. You just have to run the installer to update any of the components you have installed (services, portals, clients) and run the database tool to update the database.

I had an issue with the Self Service Portal during the upgrade, but it was related to .NET. Support helped me get it straight and it works fine now.
