How do I migrate an MS Visual Studio 2012 solution to VS 2013?

Hi:

I just downloaded and installed VS 2013.
I've got an existing 2012 based solution (ASP .Net & Web Services).
I was quite surprised to see I was just able to open the project with
no warnings regarding conversion to 2013.

Am I missing something here? Release past, we'd receive notifications that
VS was about to migrate the solution/projects to the latest version.

Is this a case of "it just works," so that the solution/project files
are not altered (no new libraries/external references unless
explicitly changed?)?

I just want to make sure I'm not missing a step/important point.

Thanks,
JohnB

Your not missing anything Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 solution files are the same so no upgrade is required for most solution types.

Cool Beans. Thx.
I saw references to that but was a little skeptical.

Thanks again.
