Can I go directly from 3.4.7 to the new 3.5.8 without installing
any intermediate versions? Or is there a different route I should

Thank you for your help,

Both patches should work fine together. As per our policy, security
fix releases contain no other changes than the security bugfix.

Just take the 3.5.7 release and apply the jumbo patch on top of
it, as you did with 3.5.6.

A 3.5.8 will be released soon with all the pending patches we
were planning the next release before it got preempted by the
security fix.

Hope this helps,
