I just did an upgrade from to 14.0.0 on my old debian wheezy:

# service kde-trinity stop; apt-get update; aptitude dist-upgrade

It took ~ 6 hours, but everything went smooth. Just keep in mind to upgrade from a console e.g. <ctrl>+<alt>+<F1> and not from within TDE. All setting were kept and everything works as expected.

Thanks for good work :-)
