March 28, 2017 - JFBConnect v7.2.0 is available now. See the full changelog.
You don't need to. You just need to install the main com_jlinked...zip file as if you were installing for the first time.
Doesn't hurt to uninstall first. Either way, all of your settings will be retained. It should be a pretty smooth upgrade process, but if you run into any issues, just let us know.
